The Cabinet office manual (later the Cabinet manual) was first published in 1979. It describes cabinet procedures and is regarded as the authoritative guide to decision-making for ministers and their staff, and for government departments. As the foreword to the 1979 edition suggests, such a guide had first been suggested by National Prime Minister Sidney Holland nearly 30 years earlier.
