Houses of Parliament: Deposited Papers

Volume 696: debated on Wednesday 7 November 2007

I am pleased to announce that from today all documents deposited in the Library of the House by Ministers will be done so electronically. Members and Peers will still be able to request a hard copy document from the Library as well as an electronic version which, whenever possible, will be available online at in a single series containing both House of Commons and House of Lords Library deposited papers.

The Library document Rules for Depositing Papers in the Libraries of the House of Commons and Lords is available on the Parliament website.

I am grateful to government departments for their co-operation and the Libraries for their work in improving access to information for Members of Parliament, Peers and the public.
