From 1 April 2016, Parliament moved into a new era of producing its own documents and materials emanating from the House of Commons and House of Lords. From 1 April 2016, The Stationery Office Ltd (TSO) no longer produced House of Lords materials and only a limited range of Commons material is being produced until 1 January 2017 i.e. Commons Bills, Explanatory Notes and some Commons Select Committees.
However TSO will continue to upload the parliamentary documents in PDF format to its online library Official Publications Online (OPO) www.officialpublicationsonline.co.uk and to continue to update the documents with the same range of ISBN numbers. The TSO Official Publications Online library collection remains in place and continues to be updated each day. The TSO Daily and Weekly Lists include details of the PDFs uploaded to the OPO Library www.officialpublicationsonline.co.uk The collection does not include Bound Volumes.
For parliamentary materials published before 1 April 2016 and for Commons Bills, Explanatory Notes and some Commons Select Committees pre 1 January 2017, there is no change in supply from TSO. TSO continues to offer print format copies of these materials, including the bespoke services of sourcing and supplying parliamentary materials from its extensive archive, dating back to the 19th century.
It must be noted that the supply of House and Command Papers and Legislation Papers from TSO in print format, is not affected by the Parliamentary changes and the supply position from TSO remains unchanged.
As Parliament moves into this new era of printing internally, TSO continues to support those sourcing parliamentary materials, past and present.
