Editorial comments: 1700-1810. The respective minutes of the Steering Committee and Shadow Cabinet record them as having met at exactly the same time and place, with different personnel. Probably one meeting followed the other. An agenda for the Shadow Cabinet precedes the minutes, from the George Younger MSS. The meeting had been intended to take place on 22 October, but was postponed.
