Scope and content

The series consists of records created by the Cabinet Operations branch of the Office of the Premier, and include committee meeting minutes, correspondence, recommendations, legal advice and requests for legislation. A very large portion of the records are those produced by the Cabinet Committee on Legislation and its meetings and proceedings.

The records provide evidence of the development and coordination of the legislative review process, and include records pertaining to both new and amended legislation. The records relate to entire bills or Acts, as well as records of amendments to particular sections.

Where possible, the records are arranged alphabetically by Ministry name and then alphabetically by Act within each Ministry grouping.

In some cases, records were arranged in two distinct groupings in the file folder, with records clipped to both the left and right sides. Metal clips were removed for preservation purposes, but records from the left side are face-down on top of records on the right hand side, which are arranged face-up.

The records are covered by ORCS 10610-20 (schedule 881099) and were selected for full retention.
