House of Commons publication scheme

The House of Commons publishes large amounts of information. Our publication scheme below splits this into topics based on what the information is about.

A version of the publication scheme in spreadsheet format, updated annually, is also available. This version also identifies each item of information under the seven classes of information laid out in the Information Commissioner’s Office’s guidance:

Format and charging

Where a fee is charged for information or if information is only available in hard copy, this is specified in the publication scheme.

If you ask us for information which is only available in hard copy, or if you require any information which is available online in hard copy instead, we may have to make a reasonable charge to cover photocopying and postage costs. These charges are in line with those set by the Parliamentary Archives for ordering copies of information they hold. Details of these charges can be found on their webpages.
