Legislative Language Data

This section contains all UK parliamentary legislation from 1900-2015. These data have been collected for my forthcoming book: ‘How Language Works in Politics: The Impact of Vague Legislation on Policy’ (University of Bristol Press). Each year from 1900 to 2015 has three folders containing all legislation (.txt), the preambles to all legislation (~pr.txt) and all financial legislation (~Fin.txt). Please note that the legislation is in plain text form and intended for natural language processing (NLP). Readers are best advised to consult legislation.gov.uk, the Justis website, BAILII, or other online legal repositories if they wish to read the legislation in hyper-text form and with complete indexing information.
