A location guide for rich primary sources for political history of the United Kingdom from 1066 to the present

Hansard's Parliamentary Papers Online

About 90% of  Hansard, the Official Report of debates in Parliament is now available for searching online!


As primary source materials, the parliamentary papers are unsurpassed. They illustrate the issues of the day, government policy and contemporary thought. The content stretches from domestic concerns to foreign relations, from statistics to fiery speeches. Recording British history from the Middle Ages to the electronic era, these records also touch on the vast expanse of the British empire and diplomatic relations with all the major world powers. Best of all, nearly all the records are in English.
