Browser support

PDF files

PDF files look like a printed page and are used for downloads of documents on this website. Most computers will open PDF documents automatically, but you may need to download Adobe Acrobat Reader. You can download the latest version of the reader from the Adobe website for free.

When you select the link to a PDF, it will open in a new browser window.
A toolbar will appear below the browser address bar, featuring a number of tools to help you view and search the document. If you need further help visit the Adobe Acrobat Reader help and support web site.

We aim for all of our published PDF documents to be accessible, but we are aware that some older documents do not meet full accessibility criteria. Please contact us if you need any documents in an alternative format.
