Text of statute as originally enacted

The Statute Law Revision Act 1867 (30 & 31 Vict. c. 59) is an act of the Parliament of the United Kingdom.

It was intended, in particular, to facilitate the preparation of a revised edition of the statutes.[3]

This act was partly in force in Great Britain at the end of 2010.[4]

The enactments which were repealed (whether for the whole or any part of the United Kingdom) by this Act were repealed so far as they extended to the Isle of Man[5] on 25 July 1991.[6]

This act was retained for the Republic of Ireland by section 2(2)(a) of, and Part 4 of Schedule 1 to, the Statute Law Revision Act 2007.

The schedule to this act was repealed by section 1 of, and the schedule to, the Statute Law Revision Act 1893.
