Conservative Party: Selsdon Meeting transcript (morning session) [‘rough’ transcript]

Document type: Declassified documents
Venue: Selsdon Park Hotel, Croydon
Source: Conservative Party Archive (CRD 3/9/93)
Editorial comments: 0930-1230. The ‘rough’ transcript is fascinating to compare with the ‘smooth’. Only part of the Conference transcript survives in the Conservative Party Archive, but it brings one closer to the actual deliberations of Heath's Shadow Cabinet than other records of the time.
