You may remember getting your school reports after you’d completed a school year – it’s a similar principle. Has a public servant done something? They haven’t done it properly until they’ve written at least one report about it. Archives are full of reports. But don’t expect to find out what really happened in the report – you will have to look elsewhere in the files for that.

An interesting report about an attempted kidnapping of Sonia McMahon, the Prime Minister’s wife. No-one seemed unduly upset at what turned out to be a student prank, but the report was still required. NAA: A1209, 1971/9346
