Administrative history: the Business and Procedure Committee was one of the standing committees established under the Bar Council Regulations of 1896.

The Business and Procedure Committee did not have a regular schedule of meetings, but met as the need arose.

Scope and content: in addition to the signed Business and Procedure Committee minutes, these minute books contain minutes of committees appointed to discuss specific issues.

The minute books contain a few attachments. In the first volume they are mainly letters and in the second volume they are mainly resolutions or reports, plus a couple of agenda papers from the late 1930s.

Finding aids: both volumes contain an integral index. There is a system of cross referencing in the margins to the minutes of other meetings, to the minute books of other committees and to the letter books.

Important note for users: great care must be taken when unfolding the documents attached to these volumes, to prevent damage to either the volume or the attached documents.
