Administrative / biographical background:

The Committee was set up in September 1936, following an appeal from the French Government for a pledge of non-intervention by other states in the Spanish Civil War. The move was supported by Britain and other countries, and it was agreed that a committee be established to administer the non-intervention scheme.

The Committee was based in London, with a British secretariat, provided by the Cabinet Office. The Committee met between September 1936 and April 1939, when it was wound up. It was decided that the records of the Committee would remain the property of the British Government.
