Editorial comments: Lord Whitelaw was President of the National Union at this point, the body formally responsible for convening and running the Conservative Party Conference. The final page appears to be a separate conversation, filed next to this one, perhaps from this date also. Whitelaw finally resigned as deputy leader of the party in Aug 1991. Read all documents from the 1989 release of MT's party and personal papers.
