Tuesday 30th June 1981
Tax Dodgers - PM against GH s [Sir Geoffrey Howe] proposal to chase the large and medium PAYE dodgers. She is very sympathetic to small tax dodgers - thinks it will increase unemployment. TL [Tim Lankester] very upset. I write a memo supporting GH. But why shouldn t the Chancellor be allowed to deploy his resources.
Malabre (WSJ) interview - went well.
Lunch with Geoffrey Wood - still insisting that inflation would balloon to 15%+ in 1981/2.
