639R. B. S. Hamilton-Temple-Blackwood to Harrod, 26 February 1937 [a]
Hamilton-Temple-Blackwood (Marquess of Dufferin and Ava) sends a copy of the Official Report of the debate of 25 February.  He announces that he has forwarded to the Treasury, on his own name, the notes Harrod had sent him, and reports that Hawtrey had cut almost everything out. 
2. In a later letter, Hamilton-Temple-Blackwood explained that Hawtrey could not recognize Harrod's handwriting as his notes were carefully typed before being sent. Hamilton-Temple-Blackwood agreed with Harrod about the Exchange Equalization Fund, and reports that Hawtrey instead stuck on his position that the government was not committed (2 March 1937, in HPBL Add. 71184/27-28).
