Editorial comments:

Younger's report follows the Lennox-Boyd note.The second paper enclosed, which is not in the Thatcher MSS, is perhaps the Post Mortem document MT saw Lennox-Boyd and Younger at 1700 on Monday 8 December. Read all documents from the 1989 release of MT's party and personal papers.
