Editorial comments: A copy of this 2007 FOI release is also held in the Thatcher digital archive. The paper copy of this document has not been traced at TNA. Indeed, it seems that some of the 1981 budget files released under FOI have since been destroyed. In the absence of a paper location, this item has been tagged as belonging to PREM19/439. The MT speech to which the document refers can be read here.
