The Sessional Returns were first published in consolidated form for Session 1986-87. Returns of:

     (i) Closure of debate in the House and in Standing Committees dating back to 1887 and 1907 respectively;

     (ii) Delegated Legislation from Session 1974-75;

Copies have also been supplied to the Record Office, House of Lords, where they are available to the public for inspection. Requests for inspection should be addressed to the Record Office, House of Lords, London, SW1A 0PW (0171-219 3074). Hours of inspection are from 9.30am to 5.30pm Mondays to Fridays.

The Public Bill Office of the House of Commons maintains a Public Bill Index from 1922 to the present day.

Public and Private Bills and Delegated Legislation are also listed by Session in the Part II Index to the relevant House of Commons Journal. A great deal of other procedural information can also be derived from this Index, for example the date of each stage in the passage of a particular Bill through the House of Commons, and instances of closure in the House and in Committees of the whole House. The Journal is published by The Stationery Office.
