Excerpt from The Statutes of New South Wales: A Convenient Index to the Public General Acts of the Legislature of New South Wales in Force on January 1st, 1898, Showing the Effect of Legislation Since the Publication of "Oliver's Statutes"
It will be noticed that, beside the enumeration of the Statutes passed into law since the publication of the first edition, additions and alterations have been effected both in the substance and form of the book, necessarily adding considerably to its bulk. A complete list of the Statutes in Oliver has been given. It will be remembered that in the first edition the list was confined to those Statutes which had been affected by legislation since the publication of Mr. Oliver's work. It now includes the Statutes that have not, as well as those that have, been so affected.
It will also be found that the Subject Index has been made more complete by the addition of new cross references, and by a better distribution of some subjects which in the former edition were found to be rather clumsy in form. Subscribers to the Statutes of Practical Utility will find that references are made in this part to the pages on which the Statutes will be found in that collection. References are not, however, made to mere titles.
The Interpretation Act, 61 Vic. No. 4, provides for a new style of reference to the Statutes, but for the sake of uniformity, and in view of the comparatively few Statutes in the present edition affected by this provision, the old form of reference has been preserved. It will be found that no practical inconvenience is caused by so doing.
As stated in the first edition The Index consists of two parts, which, though in form distinct sections, are intended to be used in combination.
