House of Commons Parliamentary Papers: About

We're moving!

In late October, 2015, the House of Commons Parliamentary Papers is getting an interface refresh, while moving to a new location - the ProQuest Government Platform! The refresh is reflective of customer research and the interface will be updated and modernized to reflect today's researcher needs.

About House of Commons Parliamentary Papers

House of Commons Parliamentary Papers are foremost among the richest and most detailed primary sources for the past three centuries, for Britain, its colonies and the wider world. As such, they constitute a major part of the world’s historical record. Parliamentary Papers influenced public opinion and social and political philosophy and provided a forum for the ideas of thinkers of the day.

House of Commons Parliamentary Papers (HCPP) includes the complete file of House of Commons Parliamentary Papers, also known as Sessional Papers or Blue Books, dating from 1715 through to today.
