HANSARD Newsletters

The Hansard Newsletter takes its name from the official printed report of parliamentary debate and proceedings in the Westminster system of government.  Named after its printer, Thomas Hansard, the reports were among the first to provide a public record of government debate, a novel concept in early 19th century Great Britain.
