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.
