The official report of proceedings in the UK Parliament

Hansard is a section of the official UK Parliament website, entirely dedicated to the proceedings taking place within the two branches of the Parliament and inside its standing committees. It gathers oral and written speeches, with relative answers, full day-to-day debates, bills and list of committee members dating back to 1988 – all this about each session of legislative activities. Speeches are available only as on-screen text, and can only be saved as such, while bills with related amendments are provided both in html and pdf format. Access is completely free, since neither membership nor subscription is required in order to view, search and download any kind of material. The website architecture is simple but effective: files are divided between the two branches of Parliament, then in databases concerning the daily activity and the various committees activity. Databases are indexed by session: users can access the text of each delivered speech, including any related answers. It is also possible to retrieve detailed information through an efficient search engine, endowed with complex textual and time parameters. Also available is a detailed user guide and several navigational aids.
