756R. Francis Fremantle to Harrod, 28 January 1938 [a]

Fremantle reports on the Minister's intention to alter the Bill in order to meet the points on which Harrod, Fremantle, and others insisted. [1]

  1. 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).
    1. a. From Bedwell Park, Hatfield, Herts. # , one page TLS, with envelope addressed to Christ Church, in HP VI-101. Confidential.
