Venue: House of Commons

Editorial comments: Vaizey wrote to MT on 23 October 1978, noting that they had had a chat at the end of the last session of Parliament about his joining the Tories. He believed now that the time to make the move was approaching, though he saw difficulties, particularly in accusations of disloyalty from former Labour colleagues.
