Editorial comments:

Timed c1500Z because this was the time set to issue the minute - see its coversheet. Read other documents selected from this file. A version of this minute in DEFE24/2252, f118, ends with a different closing line. Rather than "A submission is being made to FCO Ministers in parallel", Nicholls writes: "The FCO have been consulted and are content".
