Tuesday 23rd June 1981
PM worried that she will not have enough. Thinks Foot may sit down early. Possible that opposition will hear her out in silence (very unlikely)
Lunch with Wyldbore Smith, King (BA) [Sir John King] and Lawson.
[Rumours about my leaving due to no progress on MBC [Monetary Base Control] in the press (Financial Weekly and Guardian) - Denied and they are certainly NOT true - making reasonable progress].
PM very rude about J and R s [John Hoskyns and Ronald Miller] speech, which I thought was quite good. 2.30am
