Abstract

The problems associated with archives clarify many of the practical, political, and legal issues associated with any sort of public records system. The views of historians are naturally relevant, although there is no unanimity among them about what the law and practice in Britain should be. Many have what amount to conflicting interests in both the fullest possible recordkeeping and in the earliest possible disclosure to themselves at least. Their views about legislation depend to some extent on how recent their period of specialisation is and how successful they are at obtaining discretionary disclosure of the records they want.
