HL Deb 05 February 1998 vol 585 c127WA
Lord Lester of Herne Hill

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Whether they will make available to members of the public, without charge, copies of Notes on Clauses on the Scotland Bill. [HL285]

Lord Sewel:

As is the usual practice, Notes on Clauses will be made available to Members. In addition, notes covering all parts of the Bill, with the exception of Schedule 5, are now available free of charge on the Internet through the Scottish Parliament web site (www.scottish-devolution.org.uk). Notes on Schedule 5 will be made available shortly in the same way. Printed copies of the complete set of Notes on Clauses will also be available for purchase through The Stationery Office bookshops. Revised notes will be made available when the Bill reaches this House.
