  • Recordkeeping System
    An alphanumerical system was used. All files were proceeded with the code CB- which identifed them as belonging to the Cabinet in Confidence database. This was followed by two levels of classification, an alpha sequecnce of three charaters and forward slash (eg. CAB = Cabinet). The second level of classifcation was a indicated by 2 digits and a forward slash (eg. 01/ = Administration). The last four digits were sequentially numbered between 0001 - 9999. For example CB-CAB/01/0001
