Origins[ edit ] Though the history of the Hansard began in the British parliament, each of Britain's colonies developed a separate and distinctive history. Beforethe British Parliament had long been a highly secretive body. The official record of the actions of the House was publicly available, but there was no record of the debates.
The publication of remarks made in the House became a breach of Parliamentary privilege, punishable by the two Houses of Parliament. As the populace became interested in parliamentary debates, more independent newspapers began publishing unofficial accounts of them. The many penalties implemented by the government, including fines, dismissal, imprisonment, and investigations, are reflective of "the difficulties faced by independent newspapermen who took an interest in the development of Upper Canada, and who, in varying degrees, attempted to educate the populace to the shortcomings of their rulers".
The names of the speakers were carefully " filleted "; for example, Sir Robert Walpole was thinly disguised as "Sr. He released the man, but was subsequently ordered to appear before the House to explain his actions.
Crosby was committed to the Tower of Londonbut when he was brought to trial, several judges refused to hear the case and after protests from the public, Crosby was released. There then began several attempts to publish reports of debates.
Among the early successes, the Parliamentary Register published by John Almon and John Debrett began in and ran until William Cobbett —a noted radical and publisher, began publishing Parliamentary Debates as a supplement to his Political Register ineventually extending his reach back with the Parliamentary History.
Cobbett's avocation for the freedom of the press was severely punished by the British Government. On June 5, William Cobbett stood trial for seditious libel for an article he wrote against the British Government which was published by Thomas Curson Hansard.
Cobbett was found "guilty, upon the fullest and most satisfactory evidence". Cobbett's reports were printed by Thomas Curson Hansard from ; inCobbett's finances ran asunder and he divested himself of his proprietorship of both the Parliamentary Debates and Parliamentary History, which then "passed into the hands of Hansard in ".
For this reason, early editions of Hansard are not to be absolutely relied upon as a guide to everything discussed in Parliament. Hansard outlasted competitors including Almon and Debrett, and the later Mirror of Parliament published by J.
Barrow from to ; Barrow's work was more comprehensive but he checked each speech with the Member and allowed them to "correct" anything they wished they had not said.
The last attempt at a commercial rival was The Times which published debates in the s. In a subsidy was granted to the Hansard press and at that point reporters were employed.
In Henry Hansard, the son of Thomas Hansard, broke the family connection with the debates. At the same time the decision was made to publish debates of the two houses in separate volumes, and to change the front cover from orange-red to light blue.
A larger page format was introduced with new technology in Hansard is not a word-for-word transcript of debates in Parliament. Its terms of reference are those set by a House of Commons Select Committee inas being a report which, though not strictly verbatim, is substantially the verbatim report with repetitions and redundancies omitted and with obvious mistakes including grammatical mistakes corrected, but which, on the other hand, leaves out nothing that adds to the meaning of the speech or illustrates the argument.
In that House, the Speaker must call on a member by name before that member may speak, but Hansard makes no mention of the recognition accorded by the Speaker. Also, Hansard sometimes adds extraneous material to make the remarks less ambiguous.How does it work?
