Document type: Declassified documents
Source: CAB134/4878 f4 and CAB134/4879 f1
Editorial comments:

As with the Chequers seminar on 31 March, slides seem to have been used at the meeting: see Cabinet Office briefing for MT, 17 Mar (also on this file). For security the full version of this minute was filed separately in CAB134/4879; for the convenience of readers it has been reattached to the bland minute kept on the main file, CAB134/4878. Minutes and papers of this committee were also kept originally on PREM19/1560, but were destroyed during weeding. All documents from CAB134/4878 have been selected and can be read here.
