Northern Ireland Stormont papers now freely available

The Stormont papers website, offers access to the Parliamentary Debates of the devolved government of Northern Ireland from June 7 1921 to the dissolution of Parliament in March 28 1972.

These papers provide valuable insight into the development of the Province. The 92,000 printed pages of Parliamentary Debates document parliamentary discussion on a wide range of issues.

Users are able to search the site in a number of ways: by specific keywords, eg prisons, drunkenness; by browsing particular debates; by viewing individual volumes which are arranged by year.
