Administrative History

History

Until 1782, the two secretaries of state under the direction of the Sovereign shared responsibility for foreign affairs. In 1872 the office of the Northern Department became the Foreign Office, headed by a single Secretary of State. There were originally two political departments, each divided geographically.

Jeremy Sneyd, the Chief Clerk, described the functions of the new office in 1785:

The business of the Secretary of State's Office for the Foreign Department, consists in conducting the correspondence with all Foreign Courts, negotiating with the Ambassadors or Ministers of all the Foreign Courts in Europe, as well as of the United States of America, and receiving and making representations and applications to and from the same, and in corresponding with the other principal Departments of the State thereupon.

By the end of the eighteenth century the selection of a Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs had become largely a matter for the Prime Minister rather than the Sovereign, with foreign policy being directed by a Cabinet within which the Foreign Secretary was a pre-eminent member.

During the nineteenth century, some general departments were created, such as the Treaty and Royal Letters Department (1814), Consular Department (1825), Slave Trade Department (1841), Commercial Department (1865) and Communications Department (1922). Compared to most departments of state, the organisation and functions of the Foreign Office changed very little in two hundred years. At different times, it has taken over some of the functions of other offices, such as the Board of Trade, and in 1968 it merged with the Commonwealth Office.

Until 1906, most of the records of the Foreign Office were arranged by country and the Australian Joint Copying Project filmed several of those Series, usually selectively: Pacific Islands, France, Germany, the Netherlands, and the United States. After 1906 the records are not grouped by country but under headings such as Political, Commercial and Consular.

Until 1909, no distinction was made between those Foreign Office records created before 1872 and those created after that date. The earlier records were designated State Papers Foreign, the remainder being classified as the Foreign Office Group.

Departments of the Foreign Office

The departments of the Foreign Office fall into two categories - political and non-political. There were originally two political departments, one for each Under Secretary, again divided geographically. There were numerous administrative changes after 1815, including the abolition of the third Under Secretaryship in 1827 with subsequent rearrangement of the departments. That then superintended by the Government Under Secretary included Austria, France, Portugal, Spain, Italy, Switzerland, Turkey, Egypt and Greece. The Permanent Under Secretary headed a department including Russia, Prussia, Netherlands, Sweden, Denmark, German States, North and South America and Persia.

Consular Department

Until 1825 no organisational distinction was drawn between diplomatic and consular affairs. In that year, following the Consular Advances Act, a separate Consular Department was established. The Senior Clerk was nominally responsible to the Under Secretaries, each of whom was concerned with the consular affairs of the countries under his political superintendence. Consuls did not necessarily deal exclusively with the Consular Department; some posts conducted both a political and consular series of correspondence, and most posts corresponded to some extent with the other non-political departments.

Slave Trade Department

This department was responsible for executing the various treaties for the suppression of slavery which arose from the Congress of Vienna, but was not classed as part of the Foreign Office establishment until 1841. The superintendent of the department was subject to the direction of one of the Under Secretaries. The Slave Trade Department gradually assumed responsibility for mostly business relating to Africa.

A combined Consular and Slave Trade Department was created in 1872, but existed only until 1877 when a Consular Sub-Division was created. In 1880, a separate Consular Department was re-established. Sanitary affairs (cattle, quarantine, and pilgrims), previously dealt with by the Consular Sub-Division, remained within the Slave Trade Department, which was renamed the Slave Trade and Sanitary Department.

Commercial Department

The year 1865 saw the establishment of a separate Commercial Department, resulting from the recommendations of the Committee on Trade with Foreign Nations. The new department controlled correspondence on commercial matters with consulates abroad, the Board of Trade and other Government departments, Commercial associations, etc.

In October 1866 a combined Consular and Commercial Department was formed; this lasted until 1872 when a separate Commercial Department was re-established. This revived department was responsible for all matters concerning commercial treaties and tariffs, industrial questions, laws relating to commerce, etc.

In the general reorganisation of Foreign Office Departments at the end of 1882, consular, commercial, African and sanitary affairs were re-allocated between the Consular and African Department, and the Commercial and Sanitary Departments.

The other main administrative departments within the Foreign Office were the Chief Clerk's Department, the Treaty and Royal Letter Department, and the Library and Registry.
