756R. Francis Fremantle to Harrod,
28 January 1938
reports on the Minister's intention to alter the Bill in order to
meet the points on which Harrod, Fremantle, and others
- 1. This letter
concludes the exchanges on, and the manoeuvres regarding, the
amendments to the Population Bill. Fremantle announced to Harrod
on 13 January his intention to ask the Minister of Health, Sir H.
Kingsley Wood, what position he intended to take (in HP VI-102).
Meanwhile Fremantle sent the minister a document from the Royal
Sanitary Institute with some suggestions regarding the Population
Bill (Fremantle to Harrod, 15 January 1938, in HP VI-114/1).
Harrod proposed that Fremantle suggested to the minister that the
Royal Sanitary Institute and Harrod reached their conclusions
independently; Fremantle, however, objected that he could not
possibly do so, as the RSI's conclusions were reached on the
grounds of a strongly worded memo by Fremantle who urged them to
adopt Harrod's proposed amendment (Fremantle to Harrod, 18 January
1938, in HP VI-111).
