Mr. Walter M. Citrine,
Dear Comrade Citrine,
INVITATION TO BRITISH WOMEN TO VISIT SPAIN
With reference to our letter of the 17th September last, we have now received a reply from the UGT about the Barcelona liaison Committee and the Women's Groups in the Iron and Steel Trade Unions.
The UGT says that "as these bodies are independent of our own Trade Union Movement, being simply organs of liaison between the two Trade Unions Movements they are not competent to send such invitations abroad. When it is a matter of inviting organisations which are within the IFTU, all powers in the matter of invitation must rest with our National Trade Union Centre."
