The review was based on the Gazette website. The original submitter used the Assembly website and made no mention of the Gazette (I added this source as a reviewer). I am much more confident that all the characteristics are found when taking the Gazette as a point of reference. The Assembly data is relatively incomplete as it does not note amendments on original laws (even though amendments are still published separately). The other change I made was in B8, where I noted that data is available in TXT format (in the Gazette).
