The first meeting was held in January 1965, and by March the group was divided into three sub-groups:

sub-group A, 'It was agreed that the whole field of taxation would have to be taxes, personal taxes and indirect taxes, with the aim in each case of asking what kind of tax reforms we would like to see and what kind of economic and social effects we wish to flow from them.'

sub-group B, 'To consider means which could be used by government to encourage a more economic and efficient use by British industry of our labour and capital resources.'

sub-group C, 'To study and make recommendations about the problem of the long term balance of payments and to present a report.'

Papers include:

  1. Folder 1: minutes, notes and correspondence, Jan-Sep 1965
  2. Folder 2: notes and correspondence, Dec 1966-Feb 1969
  3. Folder 3: draft pamphlet on economic policy, with related notes, Jan 1970
