THE COMMITTEE appointed to enquire what
TEMPORARY LAWS of a Public and General Nature, made by the Parliaments of England, or Great Britain, or Ireland, or of The United Kingdom, ARE NOW IN FORCE; and what Laws, of the like nature, passed by the English, British, Irish, or United Parliaments, HAVE EXPIRED, between the First day of the last Session of Parliament and the First day of the present Session; and also what Laws, of the like nature, ARE ABOUT TO EXPIRE, in the Course, or at the End, of the present Session, or on or before the First day of August 1832; or in the Course, or at the End, of any Session referring to that period; or in consequence of any Contingent Public Event; and to report the same, with their Observations thereupon, to The House: And who were instructed to report their Opinion, from time to time, to The House, which of the said Laws are fit to be revived, continued, or made perpetual :
HAVE proceeded to an Examination of the Matters referred to
them: And beg leave to present to The House;
First: A detailed STATEMENT OF REGISTER of all the TEMPORARY LAWS, of a Public and General Nature, now in force; which have been enacted by the PARLIAMENTS of ENGLAND, or GREAT BRITAIN, or IRELAND, or of The UNITED KINGDOM, from the Commencement of the Reign of King WILLIAM the Third, to the 23d day of July 1830, being the last day of the last Session of Parliament; specifying the Matter, Date, Chapter and Title, of each of the original Acts, and the Dates and Chapters of the respective subsidiary Acts by which they have been either amended or continued. -In drawing up this Statement or Register, They have proceeded, by continuing the Enumeration of Laws contained in the Report of the Committee on Expired and Expiring Laws, ordered to be printed on the 8th day of February 1830, and adding thereto such Temporary Laws as have since been passed, and are now in force; and also, by making such Alterations therein, as have been rendered necessary by other Laws which were passed during the last Session.
Secondly: Your Committee have drawn up an Enumeration of all the Public General Laws, of a Temporary Nature, which HAVE EXPIRED between the 4th day of February 1830, being the First day
of the last Session, and the 26th day of October 1830, being the First day of the present Session: Omitting only such Annual and other Acts as have been replaced by subsequent Acts now in force.
Thirdly: Your Committee have drawn up an Enumeration of all the Public General Laws which are ABOUT TO EXPIRE, in the Course, or at the End, of the present Session, or on or before the first day of August 1832, or in the Course, or at the End, of any Session referring to that Period: and They have arranged this Enumeration chronologically, according to the Dates at which they will expire respectively.
Fourthly: Your Committee have drawn up an Enumeration of Laws, the Duration whereof depends on PUBLIC CONTINGENCIES. In this List they have not thought it necessary to include several, which, though of a Temporary and Contingent Duration, do not seem to require any special Notice; namely, such as have been made for the Funding of particular Loans, or for granting Personal Annuities, &c. &c.
To the Whole, Your Committee have subjoined an ALPHABETICAL TABLE of the Matters of the several Acts enumerated in their Report.
8 November 1830.
