TO ALL MEMBERS OF THE GENERAL COUNCIL.
INTERVIEW WITH LORD HALIFAX.
Herewith I enclose report between Lord Halifax and members of General Purposes Committee.
The interview was arranged at very short notice, as a result of the receipt of an urgent telegram from the Spanish T.U.C, asking for some definite action to be taken to get the arms embargo withdrawn. I communicated with the Chairman and the members of the Committee, and they agreed it would be advisable, in the circumstances, to approach the Foreign Secretary without delay. He agreed to have a meeting, and it was understood that it should be kept strictly private, so that he could speak to the deputation with freedom.
