Editorial comments:

This would appear to be the only survivng record of the meeting at which MT was persuaded to accept Alan Walters's reformulation of conditions for British entry to the ERM. MT's briefing for the meeting, including Walters's minute on the topic, can be read here. Read all documents from the 1989 release of MT's party and personal papers.
