All recent UK legislation is easily accessible from government websites but there are also other resources that we have purchased which give you extra functionality. The Stationery Office is producing less and less material in print as it moves towards entirely digital publication.
There is a more extensive LibGuide to Official Publications accessible via the tab above.
Parliament Business The bills and legislation section of the Parliament UK website
hansard.parliament.uk/ Recent House of Commons and House of Lords proceedings with links to the archives.
Public Information Online has a Bill Tracker.
There is more information on Parliamentary Proceedings under the UK Official Publications tab.
Explanatory Notes have been issued with UK primary legislation since 1999.
When using legislation you must be mindful regarding whether you are viewing a King's Printer Version (as published) or an amended and up-to-date version.
Local SIs are issued within the same numbered sequence but not all are printed. The University Library holds local SIs from 1954.
The legislation.gov.uk FAQ page explains how to order local SIs between 1922-2006 from The National Archives. The British Library also holds them on microfiche.
There is a very useful article on Finding and using local statutory instruments by RJB Morris (11 Statute L. Rev. 28). Users with a Raven login can read it via this link.
