Parliamentary papers 1861-1990

In the late 18th and early 19th centuries the hand-written, Latin documents, called Acts, that were discussed at diets of the 17th and 18th centuries were collected (and called "Acta Diaetae"). As from the diet of 1790, the following documents were printed: those debated by the plenary meetings, the correspondence between the two Houses and between the Houses and the monarch, law amendments and petitions. Under an instruction issued in 1839, those parliamentary papers were numbered. As from 1865 (and still today) the printed and numbered documents – those discussed by the Parliament – are called papers (irományok). The category paper includes draft laws, motions to amend, committee and other reports, petitions etc.
