Description of this SeriesDescription of this Series
  • How to use the Records
    Mr M. Brereton, the Secretary of the Department of State Development Decentralisation and Tourism was a member of the Victoria Promotion Committee. This was a semi autonomous body under the umbrella of the Department, established to promote the introduction of overseas technology to Victorian industry. This series is Mr Brereton's copy of the VPC minutes and attached papers. Therefore, it was created as a Departmental record and as such, the `agency recording' has been cited as the Department rather than the VPC. The attached papers consist of the agenda and the various reports made to the Committee by the Director and the overseas representatives. As well as the minutes and papers, there are a few items of correspondence between the VPC and Mr Brereton.

    The papers were in a large binder, with yellow sheets separating each meeting. They were removed from the binder and placed in manilla folders for boxing and transfer.

    It is difficult to determine the series date range, as it is not known when Mr Brereton became a member of the VPC. Similarly the previous Secretary of the Department may have also been a member of the Committee. The series may have finished with the formation of the Victorian Economic Development Corporation through the amalgamation of the VPC and the Victorian Development Corporation in mid 1981. However, in early 1981, Mr Brereton became the VPC Commissioner in Los Angeles, having presumably retired from the Department. It is not known if his successor as Secretary to the VPC took over his membership of the VPC.
