Hi John

We've uploaded the latest 15 years:

DRAFT external index attached that we have circulated "as is" in legal

The internal database does include other information on department,
enabling powers (IOM or UK if specific legal areas such as ecclesiastical
or airspace), parliamentary process (laid, approved, resolution, not
required), date made, date/time in force and date/time not in force
(temporary road closures), subject headings, amendments/revocations in
part, etc.
The data thins out as we rewind decades but we have a project plan to
backfill until completed in a few years time!

Best regards,
