Supplementary memorandum by Lord Turnbull
The letter of 7 October from Sir Christopher's
publishers referred to the page proofs i.e. after the manuscript
had been sent to the publisher, and after it had been type set.
It also said that Sir Christopher might want to make minor editorial
changes. But there was no acknowledgement of the fact that the
Cabinet Secretary would want to comment. This was not, in my view,
a genuine attempt to seek approval.
