Netherlands: FCO briefing for MT (“Prime Minister's Visit to The Hague, 6 Feb 1981”) [full brief for Anglo-Dutch Summit] [declassified 2011]

Document type: Declassified documents
Source: CAB133/511 f2
Editorial comments: The whole of CAB133/511 is included in this item. Following standard practice the original copy of the briefing as seen and annotated by MT was destroyed by the Cabinet Office during declassification of her files, the unmarked bound copy being preserved in its place. It is hard to explain, let alone justify, this procedure, which deprives us of her reactions to the document.
