Add the title of the document
Add the pages you used
Add all of the vital information that is necessary

Example:

"Law Commission GOV U.K., 1994, p.2-60)

The publisher is the Law Commission, which is an independent advisory non-departmental public body. Its publisher is HMSO. You would cite this in the text as 'UK Law Commission, 1994'. In the reference list, I would treat it as corporate authorship, so it would be "The Law Commission. (1994). Consultation Paper No 134 - Criminal Law, Consent and Offences against the Person. London: HMSO"

EDIT - the anon post you've been given, whilst no doubt intended to be helpful, does not conform to the format of the AP6, which is what I've given you here.

You're welcome Note where the commas go, where the italics are and the colon between the place and the publisher. Believe it or not, all of these things are important, and incorrect formatting will cost you marks at Level 4 and upwards.

The only other thing I'd point is whether or not to use 'UK' in the inline citation. Some might prefer it without, as 'UK' is usually used for government publications. If in doubt, check with your department or library.

- would you use 'UK' inline when referencing the LC?

I find that rather disrespectful to insinuate what I've provided isn't helpful.

Umm, can you actually not read? I specifically said that your post was doubtless designed to be helpful. But the information it contained was wrong.

I"m sorry you find that 'disrespectful'. I can't change the facts for you, so I'm afraid you'll have to deal with it somehow.

PS - stop misusing anonymous.

Presumably their institution is insisting on the APA, though I agree with you about using OSCOLA instead.

Surely if I'm 'hash' I'd be quite chilled?

Just use RefMe if it's still free to use. You can use most referencing systems on there!
