Description of this SeriesDescription of this Series
  • How to use the Records
    As at 2003, the records were not transferred into archival custody.

    Refer to the consignment details for this series and call up the volume for the appropriate year. A name index in the front cover of the volume provides the folio number of the letter.

  • Function / Content
    This series consists of copies of outward letters relating to the regulation of Liquefied Pertoleum Gas (LPG) (its use, storage, and handling) during the period 1960 to 1967. From 1968 copies of these letters were filed on VPRS 12366 Outward Letter Books (Explosives and Gas Examining Branch).

  • Recordkeeping System
    The correspondence was arranged chronologically by date of letter and was subsequently bound into volumes.

    There is an index at the commencement of each volume which provides an alphabetical listing of the name of person or organisation to whom the letter was sent, and gives a reference to a letter number which is in effect a page number. These numbers have been stamped sequentially on each letter in the volume.
