Description of this SeriesDescription of this Series
  • How to use the Records
    Consult the alphabetical subject index at the front of the volume to determine the file number of an outward letter relating to a particular subject or department. Letters in this series are arranged in file number order

  • Function / Content
    From its establishment, the Chief Secretarys Department co-ordinated the policy of government and acted as a channel of communication between government and its departments.

    This series contains copies of outward correspondence from the Chief Secretarys Department to other government departments, regarding Government policy decisions and outcomes. The central registry was required to register, index and maintain duplicate copies of outward correspondence.

    Unfortunately, this series has been damaged, and a majority of the correspondence documented within is difficult to decipher.

  • Recordkeeping System
    Each item of correspondence is assigned a single file number. The correspondence in the series is arranged in file number order, and is indexed by subject at the front of the volume. This series was not registered as part of VPRS 1187 Outward Registered Correspondence Part III, and there are no control records extant.
