The records on parliamentary speaking and decision-making constitute an extensive source material the potential of which has not yet been fully exploited in the study of parliamentary history either in national contexts and in a comparative perspective. Despite the rise of the study of parliamentary discourses within linguistics and political science, relatively little historical research on modern parliamentary speaking exists. Historians have mainly focused on the history of parliaments as institutions or on an individual politician’s participation in decision-making, sometimes also on parliamentary culture. Research on twentieth-century political history, with special and explicit focus on Parliament, is surprisingly scarce, too, especially in the case of Britain, the ‘mother’ of all parliaments.
