  • How to use the Records
    Entries in this register were made in the chronological order in which the Cabinet Office received submissions. Browse the pages in order to locate an entry pertaining to a specific submission.

  • Function / Content
    This series was created by the Cabinet Office to record the receipt and handling of Cabinet submissions received between April 1982 and October 1986. For further details pertaining to these submissions refer to the series registration for VPRS 11944 Cabinet and Cabinet Committee Submissions

    This series did not record details pertaining to Cabinet Committee submissions or submissions pertaining to appointments considered by the full Cabinet for this period as these were recorded in other registers. Refer to VPRS 11937, VPRS 11938, VPRS 11939, VPRS 11940, VPRS 11941 and VPRS 11942 for Committee submissions and VPRS 11946 for Appointment submissions.

    The first item in the series, for the period April 1982 to September 1983, comprises loose pages maintained within a manilla folder. Initial entries recorded date of receipt of the submission, meeting number when the submission was considered, submission number and the subject of the submission. From the start of 1983 entries also included when the submission was lodged with the Parliamentary Secretary of Cabinet and returned to the Cabinet Office, follow up action and an indication of whether the submission was accepted or rejected by Cabinet.

    The remaining items, from September 1983 onwards, comprise A3 pages stapled lengthwise with cardboard covers. Entries record essentially the same detail as the 1983 entries in the first item although several fields were in time not completed.

  • Recordkeeping System
    It appears that the numbering of submissions commenced in May 1982 with numbers retrospectively allocated to submissions received prior to that date.

    According to a note on the final page, the use of these registers was discontinued on 15 October 1986 when the Cabinet Office introduced a computerised numbering system. For subsequent series see VPRS 11954 Alphabetical list of Cabinet and Cabinet Committee Submissions by name of Ministerial portfolio (Computer Output).
