ArrangementThe surviving files for this period resemble the later 'engagement files' and contain a variety of material relating to Weatherill's personal and business life as well as his political one. One of the files covers the whole of his period in office as the Chairman of Ways and Means and appears to be a series of useful documents about his duties, particularly those of the Deputy Speaker. Otherwise the files are in rough chronological order and apparently chance survivals rather than systematically compiled.
