33 Parliamentary copyright

Parliamentary copyright in a literary, dramatic, musical or artistic work will expire at the end of 50 years from the end of the calendar year in which it was made1. The copyright in a Parliamentary Bill expires when the Bill receives Royal Assent or is withdrawn or rejected2 or at the end of the session in which it is introduced3, but copyright may revive if the Bill is re-introduced in a subsequent session4. Similar provisions apply in respect of Bills introduced into the Scottish Parliament and the Northern Ireland Assembly
