Introduction to Public Records as held by Medway Council

Public Records may be loosely defined as the records of Central Government, certain quasi-Governmental agencies, and the Judiciary.

The archive groups or classes of records contained within this folder/category, "Public Records", comprise Magistrates Court records (Judiciary), shipping registers and Crew Lists, Port of Rochester (Customs and Excise), Ministry of Health and Inland Revenue records which are all subject to the Public Records Acts 1958 and 1967.

The newly inaugurated Medway Archives Office was recognised as a Place of Deposit for Public Records* in 1990 in succession to the Guildhall Museum, Rochester.

*Now the National Archives, Kew

The specific statutory basis for Medway Archives Office being listed as a Place of Deposit for Public Records is the Public Records Act 1958 (S.4(1)) which states as follows:

If it appears to the Lord Chancellor that a place outside the Public Record Office affords suitable facilities for the safe-keeping and preservation of records and their inspection by the public he may, with the agreement of the authority who will be responsible for records deposited in that place, appoint it as a place of deposit as respects any class of public records selected for permanent preservation under this Act.

In managing, curating, storing and delivering its archives service, chiefly in relation to the Public Records in its custody, Medway Council is thus bound by certain statutory obligations and is directly accountable for the observance of these to the Public Record Office (PRO) and Lord Chancellor.

Pursuant ot the Public Records Acts cited above, the Public Record Office has promulgated the following guidelines for Places of Deposit:

Access to Public Records: A Manual of Guidance, 1999
Beyond the PRO: Public Records in Places of Deposit, 1994

Copies of these are available for public inspection by arrangement with the Borough Archivist or PRO.

Clarification of the so-called "30 Year Rule" on closure of Public Records

Public Records...other than those to which members of the public have had access before their transfer [to the PRO or Place of Deposit], shall not be available for public inspection until they have been in existence for [thirty] years or such other period.. as the Lord Chancellor may,...for the time being prescribe as respects any particular class of public records
(Public Records Act 1958 S.5(1))

Expiry of the 30 year closure period is defined (as amended by the 1967 Act) thus:

records become open after 30 years running from 1 January in the year following that of the latest document in the record

NB: Records containing information about children, can be closed for a minimum of 75 years (ie Juvenile court registers)

It should be noted at this juncture that in the absence of comparable legislation governing all Local Government records (which are not Public Records) Medway Council observes a parallel system to the Public Records Act by way of 30 year closure of records, with however a possible waiver available from the Assistant Director, Arts, Libraries and Heritage (i.e. in respect of Local Authority general administraive records only), for which a special application form is available from the Borough Archivist. Departmental Modern Records transfers are however exempt from this facility under the Data Protection Act.
