Full Text Records of Parliament in United Kingdom

(Source: the University of South Caroline Gould School of Law) The earliest and most important published records of parliament are the Rotuli Parliamentorum, which cover the period 1272-1503. These should be consulted to see the original authorized text of any statute from 1 Richard III (1483) on. However, at the beginning of Edward III’s reign, as A.R. Myers points out, “the records of parliament were still unorganised…(A)fter 1339 they improve and on the whole become increasingly full and informative about the proceedings until the end of the century. In the fifteenth century they gradually become more formal until… they become little more than records of legislation. So pronounced was this trend that the statute rolls exist only down to 1468, and the printed collection, the Statutes of the Realm, vols I and II (Record Commn, 1810,1916) had to fill the gap with transcripts of the statutes amongst the Exchequer records and elsewhere.” (41) For a detailed listing of early publications on parliament, see Maxwell.(42)
