Editorial comments:

Undated, but filed around 28 Feb 1990. Identified by inference.1540-1640. MT met Greater London Conservative MPs at the Commons after PMQs, accompanied by Mark Lennox-Boyd. The christian names of those present as noted by her suggest this is a record of that meeting. Among others it seems likely she was talking with Jeremy Hanley, Neil Macfarlane, Hugh Rossi, and Toby Jessel, all of whom sat for Greater London seats. There is mention besides of London locations - Uxbridge, Walthamstow, Redbridge. Also "London elections" and "streets of London" occur in the notes. Read other documents selected from this file.
