A new website featuring every UK law in full is now available for free.
Launched by The National Archives, you can now scrutinise 6.5 million laws documents in England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. They are stored as PDF files.
“This is the public’s statute book,” said Lord McNally, minister of state and deputy leader of House of Lords.
http://www.legislation.gov.uk presents complex information in a clear and intuitive way. Lord McNally continued that the website is groundbreaking and that it puts democracy at the heart of legislation. The website makes a major contribution to the government’s transparency agenda.
The website replaces The Office of Public Sector Information and Statute Law websites.
