Ministry of Food: Central Registry: Correspondence and Papers
Correspondence and papers first opened in the central registry of the Ministry of Food, and records of the Food (Defence Plans) Department of the Board of Trade.
During the early years of the Ministry of Food one central registry was maintained and the papers in this series are generally those which originated in this period. As a result of rapid expansion it was necessary from 1940 onwards, to decentralise the registration system, and later series include papers in a variety of file series linked to the commodity of service concerned.
Some files re-registered from the C2 file series to the LSP file series; see MAF 380
