Scope and content
The fonds consists of copies of key constitutional documents which have been made several times in photostatic or photographic format from the "copy of record" preserved in the House of Lords Record Office. The most complete set is the facsimiles on parchment for five Acts of 1774-1982 and the Proclamation of 1763. These duplicate the photostatic copies for four Acts of 1774-1867. They are complemented by photographic and photostatic copies of the Letters Patent granting Royal Assent to the Act of Union, 1840 and the British North America Act, 1867, and by photographs of the Statute of Westminster, 1931. Copying of other records from the House of Lords has been limited to microfilm of selections from the printed sessional papers (Accounts and Papers), volume LXXV/94. Included in horizontal storage: letters patent, British North America Act, 1867, container 5.
