Livesey's minutes of the National Ports Council

Scope and Content

R. C. Livesey's complete set of the minutes of the National Ports Council from its beginning as a non-statutory body in 1963 to its dissolution in 1981. Livesey's note reads 'because of their number and bulk it was not practicable to bind Council papers with Council minutes into annual volumes, which could have been otherwise desirable. A complete, or virtually complete, set of all Council papers was deposited, together with the original of the Minute book, in the Public Record Office in 1981'.
