Information Sources


This is the main series of correspondence (inwards and outwards) of the Health and Home Affairs Department and it covers the whole range of the functions and responsibilities of the Department which included health and, to 1963, various other internal matters which were the responsibility of the Home Affairs Office. These included local government, police, prisons, fire brigades, charities, etc. and any other matters of internal arrangement not confided to another minister.

An annual single number system of file registration is used for in-letters. A carbon copy of each out-letter is filed with (and given the same number as ) the in-letter to which it is a reply. As a top-numbering system is used, to find a particular letter, it is necessary to trace the sequence of numbers through the registers until the final number is reached.
