Description

This series consists of Immigration Department registers of monthly rations received from the Government Relief Stores and issued to immigrants.

The 1905-1908 register provides monthly information over a double page. Left page: Date received, Brought forward, Amounts transferred to relief ledgers, Issued and Balance forward (all these headings spread over 30 different items, including articles of food, soap, tobacco, candles and matches). On right page: Date of Issue (recorded weekly), Rations to Immigrants (also itemised into 30 different articles of food, soap, tobacco, candles and matches). Ocassionally there are special items entered such as for Christmas.

The information in the 1927-1933 register is basically the same but organised in a slightly different format: a double page for rations received, followed by a double page of rations issued.
Rations received: daily recordings of rations (individual entries for each article) plus remarks on 'Contractor, etc'. At the bottom there is information on Total balance for last month, Total issues per next page and Balance to next month (also itemised).
Rations issued: column headings for this section are: Date (provision for daily recordings), Inmates (adults, children, officers), Total number of rations and Total amounts (for each of 28 different articles)

There is a pasted page on the inside of the front cover about a "Daily scale of rations", i.e.quantities needed for up to 100 people of meat, bread, potatoes, tea, sugar, butter, oatmeal, syrup, rice and milk.
