Public Servants still write minutes to one another. Goodness knows why. However, if they want someone else to make a decision about an important matter, they write a minute. Archives are full of minutes.

minute-p1

minute-p2An interesting minute -very much of its time. Its author was making a case for women not to become Trade Commissioners – in this case he was trying to get a decision reversed. At the time this was written, married women were unable to work in the Commonwealth Public Service. NAA: A3120, 106/1/6
