A large part of this record series consists of files of the Development Coordinator for the period 1959-1968, which had been transferred to the Deputy Managing Director for Housing. These records seem to have been treated as files of the Deputy Managing Director and interfiled with the records of that office. For this reason we have grouped these records here rather than in Record Series 60.24.
