The London Gazette, Official Newspaper of Record for the United Kingdom plays a major role in the information infrastructure for government, with 200,000 notices published in 2008.
A wide range of notices, the majority of which are mandatory by law appear in the following broad categories: State, Parliament, Ecclesiastical, Public Finance, Transport, Planning, Health, Environment, Water, Agriculture & Fisheries, Energy, Post & Telecom., Other Notices, Competition, Corporate Insolvency, Personal Insolvency, Companies & Financial Regulation, Partnerships, Societies Regulation, Personal Legal.
Plans are in place to further upgrade the tagging but any change in mark up for the London Gazette (and sister newspapers the Edinburgh and Belfast Gazettes) will be backwards compatible. Different types of notice presently have very different degrees of mark up.
The quality of the information in the London Gazette is excellent. Content is published primarily on behalf of solicitors, government, insolvency practitioners and other known stakeholders. Accuracy is absolutely key.
