Available from November 2015, Proquest has partnered with the National Library of Scotland to provide this set of papers for the first time in digital format. The papers will be available via the House of Commons Parliamentary Papers database on a subscription basis.
‘As the working documents of government, the House of Lords Parliamentary Papers encompass wide areas of social, political, economic and foreign policy, providing evidence of committees and commissions during a time when the Lords in the United Kingdom wielded considerable power. Most importantly from a legislative perspective, this collection will include many bills which originated and were subsequently rejected by the Lords – rich indicators of the direction and interests of the Lords that have been largely lost to researchers.’
