MT Engagement Diary

Document type: Declassified documents
Document kind: Engagement diary
Venue: -
Source: THCR 6/1/2/1
Journalist: -
Editorial comments: Taken from a typed version of the appointment diary prepared in the Garden Room at some point following MT's resignation. The original remained in the custody of the Cabinet Office. The text differs in places from a second MS text of the diary at THCR 6/1/1/30, which probably derived from MT's office at the House of Commons: elements from that second document have been added to this online version where they add material of substance (and explicitly noted as such).
