House of Commons Parliamentary Papers

The Sessional Papers of the British House of Commons. Until now, these Sessional Papers have been available at University of Illinois only in uncataloged print volumes and microforms. The House of Commons Parliamentary Papers Digital Collection comprises the Sessional Papers from 1715 to the present. The Sessional Papers were documents printed by order of the House, and include Bills (public and private), committee reports, reports of the ministries and non-Parliamentary government organizations, and any other document submitted by order of the House. The collection does not include the debates of the House (“Hansards”) or the proceedings of the House (House of Commons Journal).
