This bibliography provides swift and informative access to information relating to Scottish affairs in Parliamentary papers. The material covered includes the reports of Royal Commissions and Select Committees, Annual Reports and Statistical Returns drawn from both Command papers and Sessional papers. The value of the work lies in the detailed annotations provided for material concerning aspects of Scottish life which are 'buried' in reports relating to the UK as a whole. Such material is frequently detailed and unique in the information it provides and yet cannot be traced via any index currently available. The subject areas covered by the bibliography include agriculture, crime and punishment, ecclesiastical matters, education and culture, finance, fisheries, health and living conditions, industry, labour, local government, mines, ownership and valuation of land, poverty and relief measures, and transport
