Editorial comments: MT left Rome at 1130, but time and place otherwise uncertain. Perhaps she gave the interview before leaving the British Ambassador's Residence at 0830. She had originally planned to give a press conference, but it was cut from the programme when she decided late in the day to return home early to attend the Chancellor’s Autumn Statement. Item omitted by error from the Oxford CD-ROM edition of MT’s complete public statements. The full file from which this item is taken can be seen here can be seen here.
