    This series consists of statements of the financial position of the Hawthorn Tramways Trust which were prepared by the Finance Committee for presentation to the Trust at its regular meetings. The statements show details of financial matters such as Bank account balances, revenue and expenditure and include lists of accounts recommended for payment for which the Trust's approval was required. Each statement is signed as confirmed by the Chairman of the Trust.

    A Finance Committee was first constituted by the Trust at its thirty-fourth meeting on 29 October 1915. Prior to this date the statements contained in this series were not produced and the information was written up as part of the Trust minutes (VPRS 7798/P1). From 29 October 1915 the Finance Committee created the Finance Books and the Trust minutes ceased to record the details of the financial position. The minutes, instead, refer to the "financial position as shown in the Finance Book", with a page number reference.

    This series therefore commenced with the creation of the statement of the financial position for the Trust's thirty-fourth meeting on 29 October 1915 and the two volumes in the P1 consignment contain the complete sequence of statements for the Trust up to its last meeting, number 126, on 30 January 1920.

    Included between pages 5 and 6 of unit 1 are the audited and certified statement of receipts and expenditure and the balance sheet for the year ended 30 September 1915. No other such entries are included in this series.

    This series neither controls nor is controlled by another series. Further information on the financial operations or activities of the Finance Committee and of the Trust may be found by referring to: VPRS 7798 Minutes Books; VPRS 7801 Minute Books - Committees; VPRS 7909, Accounting Records: Construction; and VPRS 7911, Accounting Records: General.
