What are Special Bundles?
Special Bundles contain correspondence and papers on particular matters or subjects which because of their significance or the quantity of correspondence generated were usually extracted from an agency's main correspondence series and treated separately. They may contain both registered and unregistered papers and, depending on the nature of the bundle, may cover many years or just a short period of time. Creating Special Bundles was a way for an agency to highlight records of temporary or long-term interest so that the papers were readily to hand. The general title given to them by the agency often provides little indication of the diversity of the material they may contain.
