Title: HM Treasury: Public Services (Sector), Home, Transport and Education (Group), Home and Transport (Division): Registered Files (TBP and TB prefixes)
Description:

The series contains a mixture of policy and operational work. Primarily, the records concern bilateral discussions between Treasury and government departments on annual spending in the areas of transport and broadcasting. The records should contain the ministerial bilateral discussions between the Chief Secretary to the Treasury and the Secretaries of State for the responsible government departments; to 1988, these private office papers were returned to the expenditure divisions rather than being kept by Treasury as discrete collections.

The 'TBP' prefix denotes the registry theme 'Transport, Broadcasting and the Public Trustee' whereas the succeeding 'TB' prefix denotes the registry theme 'Transport and Broadcasting'.

Date: 1981-1984
Arrangement:

The records are arranged chronologically in file prefix order. The TB prefix will follow the TBP prefix being the later prefix of the two.
