Document type: Declassified documents

Editorial comments:

The amendments are in Geoffrey Howe's handwriting. The text was probably handed to lobby journalists to help them report the speech, one of whom then supplied it to Ingham. Read all documents from the 1990 release of MT's party and personal papers.
