An Act for promoting the Revision of the Statute Law by repealing divers Acts and Parts of Acts which have ceased to be in force. [6th August 1861.]

WHEREAS with a View to the Revision of the Statute Law, and particularly to the preparation of an Edition of the Statutes comprising only Enactments which are in force, it is expedient that divers Acts and Parts of Acts which have ceased to be in force otherwise than by express and specific Repeal should be expressly and specifically repealed:

And whereas the Acts mentioned in the Schedule to this Act have so ceased to be in force to the extent specified in the Third Column of the said Schedule:

Be it therefore enacted by the Queen's most Excellent Majesty, by and with the Advice and Consent of the Lords Spiritual and Temporal, and Commons, in this present Parliament assembled, and by the Authority of the same, as follows:

Acts or Parts of Acts specified in Third Column of Schedule repealed.

1. The Acts mentioned in the Schedule to this Act shall be repealed to the Extent specified in the Third Column of the said Schedule, except as to any Operation already effected by, or Act done under, any Enactment herein comprised, or as to any Right, Title, Obligation, or Liability already acquired or accrued under any such Enactment.

Short Title.

2. This Act may be cited as The Statute Law Revision Act, 1861.
