Empire as a whole: and, with three exceptions, the remainder (including such Statutes as De Donis and Quia Emptores) may be regarded as the historical foundation of common law rules and are misleading when taken by themselves. The three exceptional Statutes referred to above are 10 Will. 3, c. 22, 11 Will. 3, c. 12, and 7 Anne, c. 5, and these alone have been reproduced in this edition, all the others having, under the circumstances, been omitted.

5. Some of the older enactments relating to India have been repealed by Statute Law Revision Acts only as regards the United Kingdom. Most of tbese have been excluded, with notes explaining that they are obsolete or inapplicable to India, and an early opportunity for repealing them, where possible*, by express legislation in India will probably be taken,

probably be taken, Where it is stated that an enactment has been repealed by an Act of Parliament, it is to be understood that the repeal extends, expressly or by necessary implication, to India, or that the enactment repealed never had any application to India : where in any other case the extent of the repeal is limited, the fact is indicated.

6. Statutės passed before 1861, which have been locally repealed in India, have likewise been omitted, the repealing Act being in each case cited in loco.

7. The Chronological Table prefixed to the volume follows the English Chronological Tables, and not the tables prefixed to the Statutes Revised : in other words, the repeals are indicated in it in detail,

8. A few foot-notes have been inserted, and at the end of the volume will be found a list of Acts of Parliament affected by Indian legislation, a note and statement regarding the extent of the various Statute Law Revision Acts passed, and also an index,

* In some cases it will be found impossible so to extend a repeal. Thus s. 1 of the Government of India Act, 1854 (17 & 18 Vict., c. 77) was repealed as to the United Kingdon only by the Statute Law Revision Act, 1892 (55 & 56 Vict., c. 19). But the Act of 1854 is one of those Statutes which cannot see the Indian Councils Act, 1861 (24 & 25 Vict., c. 67), s. 22-be affected by legislation in India.
