Dods Parliamentary Companion

The UK Parliament bible was first published in 1832 and has been updated every year since

Quite simply, this is the most respected guide to people and institutions in UK politics. It is widely acknowledged that the speakers in the Houses of Parliament always have the latest edition close at hand, while numerous MPs, civil servants and public affairs professionals also use this trusted source of parliamentary information. 

Our annual hardback guide includes:

  • The workings of ministerial departments, including responsibilities, parliamentary private secretaries, special advisers, Commons whips, Lords spokespeople and whips and the Opposition
  • Biographical information on all MPs and peers, plus up-do-date contact details and analysis of MPs and peers by political interests, countries of interest, gender, age and party
  • Details of all committees and All-Party Groups, House of Commons officers and officials, House of Lords principal office holders and staff and the Parliamentary Press Gallery
  • Information on the devolved parliament and assemblies, civil service, European Union and diplomatic representation
