star this property answer text <p>A search of the files held on The National Archives’ online catalogue, <em>Discovery</em>, has revealed no files relating to Claudia Vera Cumberbatch alias ‘Claudia Jones’ and three files relating to Malcolm Ivan Meredith Nurse alias ‘George Padmore’ These can be found here: <a href="https://discovery.nationalarchives.gov.uk/details/r/C1255063" target="_blank">https://discovery.nationalarchives.gov.uk/details/r/C1255063</a>; <a href="https://discovery.nationalarchives.gov.uk/details/r/C14206480" target="_blank">https://discovery.nationalarchives.gov.uk/details/r/C14206480</a>; <a href="https://discovery.nationalarchives.gov.uk/details/r/C6097450" target="_blank">https://discovery.nationalarchives.gov.uk/details/r/C6097450</a></p><p> </p><p>It should be noted however, that <em>Discovery</em> only searches catalogue descriptions, and does not search the contents of the records in our repositories. This means that these individuals may appear within other records held at The National Archives, for example passenger lists, but this would not be picked up by a <em>Discovery</em> search if their names do not feature prominently enough to be included in the catalogue description provided by the department on transfer.</p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p>​The Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO), like other government departments, is responsible for selecting its archive records for permanent preservation in line with the requirements of the Public Records Act. Records selected for permanent preservation are transferred to The National Archives (TNA) where they are available to historians and members of the public, subject to any legal exemptions. TNA holdings can be searched using their online catalogue which is available on their website.</p><p>The FCO has identified two paper files relating to George Padmore which we are currently holding. Both of these files were created by the former Colonial Office and were selected for permanent preservation. One of these files has completed the review process under the Public Records Act and is legally retained by the FCO on grounds of sensitivity. The other file will be transferring to The National Archives later this year. We have not identified any files relating to Claudia Jones in the FCO archive.</p>
