Socialists' " Hostage" Plan to Foil Franco
From Our Own Correspondent
Glasgow and Edinburgh Socialists are likely to join forces to forward a shipment of food, motor-cars, mechanical parts and arms to the Spanish Government.
Details of this were given during a meeting of the Glasgow and Edinburgh Trades and Labour Councils, held in Glasgow during the week-end.
Mr. Arthur Brady, secretary to the Glasgow organisation and relentless opponent of General Franco, is credited with the statement that already several Glasgow crews have volunteered to man the ship that has been offered to Scots supporters of the Spanish Government.
Ile is further reported to have stated that the ships will carry hostages of such importance that any unwarranted attack upon the vessel would leave the Government no alternative but to take action.
