Editorial comments: 0930-1130. This is a more polished version of the text than the "rough" notes from which it is derived. It gains in readability, but the "rough" text reveals more.

Importance ranking: Major

Themes: Agriculture, Conservatism, Defence (general), Higher & further education, Foreign policy (Asia)
