Appraisal, destruction and scheduling


System of arrangement

Papers were arranged in chronological order, from earliest to most recent. The arrangements of parts follows this order, with the earliest date at the bottom of Part 1 to the most recent date at the top of the last file part. The original order and file titles were therefore retained, except where materials belonging together had become separated and were therefore reunited. Where files were not part of an original sub-series, the latter was created by related subject. The sub-series were not re-arranged in an artificial order of priority so the order follows the original order. Sub-series headings were created, mostly using the original files, for ease of reference.
