Series notes:
The system of setting up boards and committees for general and particular purposes was well developed during Lieutenant-Governor Arthur's period and continued by his successors. The papers in this volume follow a fairly regular pattern

a copy of the document setting up the board or committee

papers considered by the body or relating to its proceedings

and a copy of its report. After October 1828 the reports are omitted, but file references to CSO 1 are given, as they are in most other cases. Examples coming under the consideration of these boards are: the issue of clothing and bedding from the public stores

the misconduct of a surgeon-superintendent of a convict ship

New Norfolk as an alternative site for the capital

abuses or improvements in administration

Government printing

trading by ticket-of-leave holders. The volume has its own index to subjects of enquiry, with sub-entries.
