NotesNews: 30 Jan: Mr Anthony Crosland, a former Labour Cabinet minister, said he would return
to the trustee in bankruptcy a coffee pot which it was said at the Poulson bankruptcy hearing was
a gift from Mr Poulson. In a letter thanking Mr Poulson for the coffee pot, estimated by Mr
Poulson to have cost about £100, Mr Crosland said: "I tremble to think how much it cost. I shall
treasure it as a memory of a very beautiful building." Mr Poulson said he often gave presents to
public figures at the opening of new buildings he had designed. News: 30 Jan: Mr Heath flew to
Washington for two days of talks with President Nixon. The Prime Minister's main aim was to
ensure, now that Britain was a member of the EEC, that any differences between the European
Community and the United States, in particular over trade, should not disrupt the cohesion of the
Western alliance. News: 30 Jan: The question of United States purchases of Concorde would still
be open during the talks.
