Overview

Edited by Peter Cockton
Advisory Editors: D. Marshallsay, K.A.C. Parsons and F.W. Torrington

 

`The nineteenth-century House of Commons papers . . . cannot be matched as a historical source in any other country in the world. It is hardly too much to say that together with Hansard's Parliamentary Debates , they would enable the greater part of Victorian history to be reconstructed even if all other sources were simultaneously destroyed.'
Norman Gash, The Times Literary Supplement

Reproduced from the original volumes in the Library of the Department of Trade and Industry with additional documents from sets in the House of Commons Library, the House of Lords Library, the British Library, the Home Office Library and Cambridge University Library. The only complete microfiche edition available and now regarded as the standard set against which all other sets are judged for completeness.
