Date: 1908 - 1915

Scope/content:

The Cabinet Papers comprise papers acquired or produced by WSC in his capacity as a Cabinet Minister (rather than a Departmental Minister). They largely consist of printed papers on issues outside the province of WSC's department, prepared by WSC and other ministers. The Papers also include correspondence on matters brought (or intended to be brought) before the Cabinet and some manuscript notes which appear to have been written during Cabinet meetings [for example CHAR 21/31]. The papers have been divided into correspondence and subject-based files and are arranged chronologically.

A wide range of subjects is covered by the material in this class, including material relating to the First World War and topics such as recruitment, casualty figures, the National Register, the Dardanelles and the manufacture of munitions.
