The Lords of Papers


A lord-of-papers is a member of the House of Lords who is entitled to one copy of every paper presented in the House of Commons. They also have the right to order working papers for the House. Some of these papers are sent to the Lords’ homes so they can review them. These documents can include government publications and parliamentary papers.

Newly digitised, the House of Lords’ papers offer a unique glimpse into the 19th century British Parliament. The papers contain a range of information on a wide range of topics, from the divorce of Queen Caroline to child labour and the Great Western Railway Bill. The papers also reveal the details of British politics during this crucial time.

The working papers of parliament contain bills and reports produced by government departments and bodies. They also include papers produced by committees. Some of these papers are published as Lords of Papers, while others are published as Commons Papers. Various government bodies also publish their own papers, such as the Hutton Inquiry into the 7/7 London bombings.
