§ 14. Commander Galbraith
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs the purpose for which facilities have been granted to trade union representatives to visit Italy.
§ Mr. Eden
Facilities were granted at the request of the Trades Union Congress for the visit to Italy of one or two trades union representatives, in order that they may be able to ascertain the possibilities of organisation among the Italian workers and the possibilities of rebuilding the Italian trade union movement. The purpose of the visit is purely exploratory.
§ Commander Galbraith
Is it the intention of the Government to grant similar facilities to members of other associations desiring to proceed to Italy in the interests of post-war trade, or for other purposes?
