Tuesday 7th July 1981

Spent most of day developing objections to Prior s employment package - analyses unemployment without mentioning wages!

Lunch with French Ambassador - Sam Brittan probing

Sold $50,000 for £26,034 (Not too bad)

Dinner with Miguel Schweitzer (Chile Amb.)

Eldon Griffiths is a pompous ass. Wants to buy arms but also wants recognition
