Attention has been drawn, somewhat belatedly, to the editorial note in your issue of October 3, alleging that the Trades Union Congress at Plymouth was not told that a delegation from the French Trade Unions had been sent there to urge the lifting of the embargo upon the supply of arms to Spain.
On behalf of the T.U.C. General Council I must contradict this statement. It is seriously unjust and injurious. There is not a word of truth in the statement that the French Trade Unions sent a delegation to the Plymouth Congress. Neither is there any ground for the suggestion that information concerning the attitude of the continental Trade Union movement on the Spanish question was withheld from the Trades Union Congress at Plymouth.
I trust you will give publication to this letter in your next issue.
