HCPP Online Trial

We have obtained trial access to the House of Commons Parliamentary Papers (HCPP). The resource requires a password to access it which can be obtained by emailing

Over 200,000 House of Commons sessional papers from 1715 to the present are contained in this resource, with supplementary material going back to 1688.

The collection includes pre-Hansard debates, House of Lords and Commons journals as well as reports and papers presented to both Houses. All papers are fully indexed and searchable and high-quality scans of the original printed papers allow users to see accompanying illustrations, statistics and maps.

The trial access is available until February 20.

To see our trial databases at any time check our website. We welcome suggestions from staff or students for any resources that may be relevant.
