The National Council of Labor, composed of delegates representing the British Labor Party, the Trades Union Congress and the Cooperative Movement, today decided to seek a discussion with Prime Minister Clement R. Attlee to urge wider action by the government to stamp out fascist activities.

The Council will attempt to hold the parley with Attlee before Parliament reconvenes next month. Today’s Council meeting was presided over by Emanuel Shinwell, Minister for Fuel, and attended by Sir Stafford Cripps, President of the Board of Trade.
