The Work of the House of Lords
After each session the House of Lords produces an informative booklet about its work. It could be a very dull list of statistics and lists (Analysis of divisions on bills; Lists of Committee Reports; Statistics about Party Strengths; Sitting Days...) - it has these - so academics and others who love to have information on hand [I believe we are called 'geeks'] can be happy...
...but it also has lots of descriptions of the process that particular bills went through, and some of the interesting debates held.
