We hold hard copies of the House of Commons Registers of Members’ Interests from 1992-2001 (HC/CS/1). We also hold the House of Lords Registers of Peers’ Interests (HL/PO/JO/10/11) which are printed annually. To find the paper number for the Lords Register you’ll need to consult The Stationery Office Annual Catalogue. A copy of the Annual Catalogue is available in our search room and it’s possible that your local library might hold a copy too.
