British Parliamentary Papers: Irish University Press Series

How to find British Parliamentary Sessional Papers, Debates and other documents.

Irish University Press Series of Parliamentary Papers

The Irish University Press has reprinted selected nineteenth-century British Parliamentary Papers in 1000 volumes. These are divided into thirty-two subject areas listed here. There are many additional nineteenth-century Papers that did not make it into the IUP reprint series. These are available online in HCPP.

In the left and right columns are listings of subject sets in the Irish University Press series. Dates listed indicate only a start and end date for the set; there is not necessarily information for all of the years in between.

As mentioned above, in most cases not all of the material available on a subject has been included in a set. However, in selected sets of great importance, such as Slave Trade, all materials are included. These sets are indicated below by an asterisk (*).

A Catalog in PDF format that can be downloaded and printed is available from the publisher.
