Alert service help

After completing a Hansard advanced search​, you have the option to set up an email alert. 

Alerts allow you to receive updates whenever new content which matches your search is published.  Currently, this service only applies to Hansard content. 

To minimise congestion in your email inbox, only one email is sent daily, early in the morning, containing a list of all new matching items.  If there are no new matching items, you will not receive an email.  After initial notification is sent regarding a new Hansard item (which will be the proof version subject to corrections), you will not receive furthernotification for that item if it is updated as part of the correction process. ​

Follow the steps below.

  1. Use the Hansard advanced search to complete a search. Figure 1 - "Create an alert" link
