Description of this SeriesDescription of this Series
  • How to use the Records
    As there are no indexes in archival custody researchers will need to know the approximate date an agency sought advice from the Crown Solicitor.

  • Function / Content
    These records were maintained by the Crown Solicitor's Office (VA 667). The role of the Crown Solicitor was to provide legal advice to Executive Government, Ministers of the Crown, Government Departments and Instrumentalities. This advice is known as a Memorandum and generally relates to an interpretation of a particular piece of legislation or regulation.

    This series consists of the original Memorandum of Advice tendered to a particular agency. The series also includes a covering letter from the Crown Solicitor and in many cases a copy of the original correspondence received from the government agency.

  • Recordkeeping System
    Each Memorandum of Advice is arranged by annual single number (ie 39/1967 is the 39th advice sent in 1967).
