Archive Paper to replace Vellum for recording of British Laws
February 10, 2016 6:56pm CST
Vellum can last up to 5,000 years while the Archival Paper they intend to use will only last 200 years. I do not know all that much about British law but it seems that the House of Lords overruled the House of Commons in this as it is their right to do so. I hope that the decision is redacted. History is so precious and it should not be played with so carelessly. £80,000 saved is not worth potentially destroying history for future generations.

@LilyBeBack Well I haven't read the article, but have since seen a headline that says the vellum tradition has been saved. I suppose you are right, lamination would preserve it for longer. Oh but the money your nana has missed out on by them continuing with the vellum!
