Information Sources


These registers recorded the details of letters relating to various local government matters. Letters were received by the Colonial Secretary's Office, Home Secretary's Office Health and Home Affairs Department and Local Government Department, respectively.

Each entry in the register gives the number of the letter, the number of any previous subsequent correspondence, the date of the letter and its registration, the author and subject of the letter, and the action taken. The register is divided into subjects, for example, accounts, bridges, legislation, tramways. As a top numbering system is used, it is necessary to use the register to trace the sequence of numbers until the final top number is located.

The Local Government correspondence was destroyed in the 1974 flood.
