Scope and Contents

Tedder's discussions with Lancelot Law Whyte have reached the stage when it is desirable for the position to be put on more formal lines. He is asking the Director of Contracts to communicate directly with Sporborg after which he will probably wish to arrange a meeting between Sporborg and Lancelot Law Whyte.
The Director of Contracts for the Air Ministry was Lancelot Vernon Meadowcroft, but see next.
