Conservative Party: Cartledge minute to Richard Ryder (plan for MT to host Chirac at EDU Conference dinner) [Giscard would take it “much amiss”] [released 2010]

Document type: Declassified documents
Source: Thatcher MSS (Churchill Archive Centre): THCR 2/10/5
Editorial comments: Chirac decided in the end not to attend the dinner. A note from Richard Ryder to MT, 17 July, suggested “His decision may not be entirely unrelated to the fact that our European Group supported Simone Weil for the Presidency of the European Parliament” (also THCR2/10/5).
