What is included in the Chronological Tables?
In 1974 the Statute Law Committee authorised the Law Commission and the Scottish Law Commission to prepare a chronological table covering the 26,000 Local Acts passed between 1797 and the end of 1973 and the 11,000 Private, later described as Personal, Acts passed between 1539 and the end of 1973. Both Tables have been published (HMSO and TSO respectively), as updated on the dates of publication by the Law Commissions. The text is now updated on this site to December 2008. For an explanation of Chronological Tables abbreviations please see the Related Pages menu.
Officially printed versions are available from The Stationery Office Limited.
