The Garland Papers document Victor Garland's varied roles and activities as a politician, both in his electorate and in Canberra. They also contain source material on the activities and strategies of the Liberal-Country Party Opposition in 1972-75.

Biographical Note

Ransley Victor Garland, politician, accountant and company director, was born in 1934 and grew up in Perth where he was educated at Hale School and the University of Western Australia. The only son of a professional accountant, Garland himself practised as a Chartered Accountant from 1958-69. He became active in community affairs, serving on a number of charities and on the Claremont Town Council from 1963-70 and in the Liberal and Country League of Western Australia (the W.A. Branch of the Liberal Party) where he held the position of Senior Vice President.

In April 1969 Garland was elected to the Federal seat of Curtin in the by-election resulting from Sir Paul Hasluck's resignation. Curtin, a blue-ribbon Liberal electorate, was held by Garland until early 1981.

During his parliamentary career Garland served as a Minister in the McMahon and Fraser Governments and as Chief Opposition Whip in 1974-75. Under McMahon he was Minister for Supply (1971-72) and Minister Assisting the Treasurer, B.M. Snedden (1972). Following the dismissal of the Whitlam Government and return to power of the Coalition in 1975, Garland was again appointed Minister Assisting the Treasurer and also Minister for Post and Telecommunications He resigned from that post following electoral malpractice allegations, of which he was subsequently exonerated in court. After a period on the backbenches he was reinstated by Malcolm Fraser as Minister for Veterans' Affairs (1977-78) and soon afterwards Minister for Special Trade Representations (1977-79), a portfolio which involved him in a number of overseas negotiations and trips to Europe, the Middle East, North America and Asia. A Cabinet reshuffle in December 1979 saw Garland appointed Minister for Business and Consumer Affairs and Minister Assisting the Minister for Industry and Commerce.

A feature of Garland's political career was his involvement in numerous party and parliamentary committees including the House of Representatives Expenditure Committee (Chairman 1976-77) and Government Members Committees that he chaired on Foreign Affairs (1970-71), Taxation (1970-71) and Treasury (1977). He was also Parliamentary Adviser to the Australian Mission to the UN General Assembly in 1973.

Following the November 1980 elections, Garland left Parliament to take up the appointment of High Commissioner to the United Kingdom, succeeding Sir James Plimsoll. Garland served as High Commissioner from 1981-83. After 1983, Garland worked in London as director of more than thirty public liability companies (including three in the United States of America), some as Chairman. He was also appointed Vice-Chairman of the South Bank Board, established in 1985 to administer the South Bank Royal Festival Hall arts complex in London.

Victor Garland was knighted in 1982.

SERIES 4 - PARLIAMENT AND COMMITTEE FILES, 1967-80

During his parliamentary career from 1969 to 1980, Garland was active in several parliamentary and government members committees.

SERIES 6 - SPEECHES, 1963-82

In the course of his public life Victor Garland has delivered hundreds of speeches and addresses on formal and informal occasions, including during election campaigns, at Liberal Party and electorate functions, addresses to conferences and seminars, and speeches made while High Commissioner to Britain. Records of many of these speeches were kept and are preserved in the Garland Papers. In this series, speeches made by Garland between 1963 and 1982 and kept in Garland's Canberra and Perth offices have been brought together. Included are printed speeches, speaking notes, drafts annotated by Garland or his staff, and related source and background documents. Some papers relate to the publications of articles based on speeches.

The second, larger sub series contains speeches delivered outside the House (1963-82), including some made before Garland entered Parliament and others made while he was a High Commissioner. Occasionally, texts of interviews and TV appearances occur in these speech files.

This correspondence is filed with honours lists, office notes and other papers.

SERIES 16 - MINISTER ASSISTING THE TREASURER, 1971-76

Garland's first Ministerial appointment was in August 1971 as Minister for Supply in the McMahon government. From March 1972 he was concurrently appointed Minister Assisting the Treasurer, Bill Snedden. After the fall of the Whitlam government in 1975 Garland was again appointed to this post while concurrently serving as Minister for Post and Telecommunications. However he held these portfolios only briefly (December 1975 - February 1976) before allegations of electoral malpractice (of which he was later cleared in court) led to his resignation from the Ministry.

Garland's responsibilities as Assisting Minister included dealing with some of the letters received by the Treasurer, assisting in the routine administration of the Treasury, and involvement with the passage of relevant legislation, particularly by representing the Treasurer during the Committee stage of bills.

This series comprises copies of correspondence on a range of matters, mostly related to taxation (1972), and Treasury minutes and information for Garland (1972, Dec. 1975 - Feb. 1976).

Further papers relating to Garland's activities as Minister Assisting the Treasurer may be found in Series 7 and 10.

SERIES 17 - OPPOSITION, 1959-78

In the December 1972 elections, the McMahon Government lost office and was replaced by the Labor Government of Gough Whitlam. Garland was not initially elected to the shadow ministry, but served on a number of parliamentary committees as well as being elected Parliamentary Adviser to the Australian Mission to the United Nations General Assembly in September 1973. He was Chief Opposition Whip in 1974-75 and following Malcolm Fraser's elevation to the Opposition leadership, Garland was appointed Shadow Minister for Public Service Matters, the A.C.T., Women's Issues, and Shadow Minister Assisting the Leader of the Opposition (March -November 1975).

The series contains a variety of papers relating to Garland's activities and interests during his period in Opposition. There are papers on the December 1972 Shadow Cabinet elections, Shadow Cabinet in 1975, party room procedures, Liberal and Country Party policies, Opposition tactics and strategy in parliament, media files, and more general material on subjects such as labour, unions, student activism, immigration and the economy.

There are also policy documents, notes, copies of legislation and background material. Subjects represented include the Royal Commission on Australian Government Administration, Commonwealth Superannuation Scheme, long service leave, creation of the Australian Federal Police, A.C.T. policies and ordinances, and Opposition policies for women.

SERIES 18 - MINISTER FOR VETERANS' AFFAIRS, 1977-78

Garland spent a period as a backbencher following his resignation from the ministry in February 1976. He was then appointed to the Veterans' Affairs portfolio, replacing Senator Peter Durack in the Cabinet reshuffle which followed R.J. Ellicott's resignation as Attorney-General. A separate Department of Veterans' Affairs, enlarged to include responsibility for Defence Service Homes and war graves as well as repatriation matters, had been created in October 1976. After the December 1977 Federal election, Garland held this portfolio concurrently with that of Trade for some months.

After the December 1977 election, Garland succeeded John Howard as Minister for Special Trade Representations. He also assisted Doug Anthony as Minister for Trade and Resources, acting in that portfolio on a number of occasions. Garland's job as Special Trade Representations Minister was in effect to head a small task force of specialists, with the aim of improving Australian access to overseas markets. A particular focus of his attention was the Europe and the European Economic Community. He negotiated a bilateral agreement between Australia and Iraq, and also visited North America, Europe and Asia.

The papers in this series have been arranged in five groupings. With the exception of the first, there has been no attempt to separate papers relating specifically to the Special Trade Representations or Trade and Resources portfolios. Much of the material in the series was created or received in Garland's Special Trade Representations role.

The bulk of the series is from the period 1978-79.
