|Description||Letter, dated 2 June 1937, in which Chamberlain, 11 Downing Street [London], thanks Smedley for his letter of support, noting that he has 'always been a good friend'. |
Smedley Crooke (1861-1951), MP, probably wrote this letter in response to Chamberlain's appointment as Prime Minister, in the previous month.
On the back of this letter has been pasted a copy of the question to the Minister of Labour posed by Sir Smedley Crooke, 21 December 1938, and [Alan Tindal] Lennox-Boyd [1st Viscount Boyd] (1904-1983)'s reply. 'How many ex-servicemen in receipt of disability pensions are registered at labour exchanges as unemployed...?' This appears to have no connection with the letter from Neville Chamberlain.
