  • Function / Content
    This series comprises manilla folders containing loose briefing papers on specific issues for Cabinet submission. There are three different types of briefing papers within these folders:

    -- briefing papers for Cabinet
    -- briefing papers for the Premier on submissions to be raised in forthcoming Cabinet meetings and
    -- briefing papers or correspondence for the Premier from government agencies, for example briefings on non Cabinet meetings.

    The folders contain a mixture of duplicate and original documentation and have been frequently annotated. Many of the briefing papers for Cabinet appear to be copies of the original papers, which are in VPRS 11951 Agenda and Premier's Briefing Papers I.

    Judging from the contents, it would appear that these folders were created for the Premier. The folders were probably created and maintained within the Cabinet Office as these were found intermingled between the various Cabinet records of the Governments of John Cain and Joan Kirner when these records were transferred to PRO custody. It is unclear whether similar files pertaining to other issues were created.

  • Recordkeeping System
    The original arrangement of these records is subject to research. The folders have been placed in a chronological sequence based on the date of oldest document in each file. Papers within individual folders are arranged in rough chronological order.
