Successful

Request and Response

I can confirm that The National Archives holds information relevant to your request.

The National Archives holds records relating to local government in Wales within our collection, however, local government records are not public records and would therefore not be transferred to us. We hold information regarding Welsh local authority records which are held at local archives in Wales and this is searchable in our catalogue: http://discovery.nationalarchives.gov.uk/

We would like to clarify that, although The National Archives’ online catalogue, Discovery, lists records and provides details of holdings from archives all over the country, The National Archives is a separate organisation.
