British Parliamentary Journals

The Journals record the daily transactions of each House of Parliament. They differ from the Debates in that they record what was done in each House, as opposed to what was said.

Journals of the House of Commons

The contents of the Journals vary through the years, but generally include:

British Parliamentary Debates (Hansard)

Official publication of the British parliamentary debates, also known as Hansard or the Official Report, began in 1909. Since then, all speeches delivered in both Houses are transcribed by parliamentary staff and printed substantially verbatim. Previously, the debates were compiled in various parliamentary histories and privately published proceedings of Parliament.

Current topics

  • Constitution for Europe. Thematic fact sheets describing the results of the Convention and the proposed changes to the Constitution.
  • CORDIS. Community Research and Development Information service. Provides information on all EU-supported R&D activities, including programmes, projects, results, publications and partners.
  • Enlargement Directorate-General. European Commission.
