On Friday 7 December I got an email from the very kind and patient Bronwyn at the House of Representatives telling my I have my boxes! I can now go and see what they actually contain and if it’s useful for my research (here’s hoping!).
It has taken two years to get these boxes from my initial archives request. If they don’t contain what I hope they do, this thesis is going to become something different. Something containing no archival material at all!
