  • How to use the Records
    ***Special Access Conditions***

    Although records transferred from this agency are available for public inspection, special access conditions apply. The records have been transferred to the Public Record Office Victoria on the understanding that they remain the property of the Parliament of Victoria. Parliamentary records are transferred on condition that all requests for access will be referred to the Clerk of the Legislative Council/Legislative Assembly as appropriate, for determination in each case.

    Application to inspect the records should be made to the appropriate officer and written authorisation must be presented at Public Record Office Victoria Search Rooms before records can be made available for inspection.

  • Function / Content
    This series comprises the documentation collected or created by the Joint Committee on Rural and Regional (previously known as Rural and Regional Services Development Committee) (VA 4832) in the course of its activities and inquiries held into issues concerned with the provisions of services to, or the development of, regional Victoria.

    A range of documents was either created or collected by the Committee in the course of each inquiry. Although the range of documents captured during each inquiry will vary, the following broad categories of documents are common:

    Background papers comprising copies of printed material, reports etc gathered by the Committee in the course of initial research about the body to be reviewed.

    Correspondence files relating to either the actual investigation or organisational aspects of the inquiry.

    Submissions tendered by individuals or organisations during the investigation stating their views on the issues concerned. Some submissions were also received in response to public hearings or issue of the final report.

    Transcripts of public hearings which must be held as part of each inquiry. Copies of the transcripts, which were forwarded to the various participants for amendments or corrections are also included.

    Reports including the final printed copy as presented to Parliament containing the Committee's findings and recommendations and reports made by consultants for the Committee.

  • Recordkeeping System
    The records of each inquiry have been arranged chronologically according to the years in which the inquiry were conducted. In order to achieve consistency, the records within each inquiry were boxed in the same order as listed above (i.e. background papers, correspondence files, submissions, transcripts and reports).

    The P2 consignment of this series consists of transcripts of evidence which were either submitted or conducted "In Confidence" or "In Camera". These items have been placed in a separate consignment to guard against inadvertent unauthorised access.
