Information Sources


This series consists of copies of Minutes of Proceedings of the Executive Council. The usual practice was for each Minister to present recommendations from his Department to the Executive Council. Each recommendation would then either be approved and embodied in an Executive Council Minute, or disapproved. A copy of the minute would be sent to the Minister so that his Office could take the necessary action.

There is a separate form for each recommendation. Each form contains a statement as to whether or not the recommendation was approved by the Council and the date and number of the Executive Council Minute which includes the recommendation. Where the minute has been published in the Queensland Government Gazette, the date of the notice is given. The letter number of any previous correspondence on the subject is shown on the top left hand corner of the form. The date of any subsequent action taken by the Department is also given. There might be remarks written such as "Crown Solicitor informed", "Confirmed", "Immediate action", etc.
