I am struggling to find help with regard to referencing an act of parliament in Harvard Style. I have cited both the Climate Change Act and the Energy act in my literature. For example - The Climate Change Act (2008) sets the UK’s greenhouse gas emissions target, “to ensure that the net UK carbon account for the year 2050 is at least 80% lower than the 1990 baseline” (pg. 1.). Could you perhaps give me an example of how such an Act should appear in the reference list/bibliography?
A reference for an Act of Parliament using the Harvard Style should include the following information:
Name of Act: Name of Sovereign (e.g. Elizabeth II. Chapter number (in italics)
Year of publication (in round brackets)
Place of publication: Publisher
This is taken from Cite them Right by Richard Pears and Graham Shields. Copies are available in the Library.
