Number of measures[edit]

Therefore I have changed the number to 124.

Missing numbers[edit]

For example 1982 No. 1. Were these proposed but not passed? Repealed? Rich Farmbrough, 17:15, 19 September 2010 (UTC).

Presumably whoever loaded the original list only had a list of unrepealed Measures. My own handwritten list, with details taken from the Measures printed in the sessional/annual volumes from 16 & 17 Geo. 5 (1926) up until 2008, shows no unused numbers. However, there were no Measures passed in 1966, 1973, 1979, 1981, 1984, 1985, 1987, 1989, 1996, 2002, or 2004. I will add the missing Measures when I get the chance. Oh, and for the record: 1982 No. 1 was the "Pastoral (Amendment) Measure 1982" (although oddly enough I have a question mark against this short title, so a quick trip down to the library tomorrow will be required to find out what that's about).

Mystery explained: the copy of 1982 No. 1 that I looked at has a blank space for the fourth digit in the short title! Anyway, I have now added all the missing Measures. Andrew Gwilliam (talk) 17:50, 20 July 2011 (UTC).

Same force as Act of Parliament.[edit]

Is this correct that they have the same force as an Act of Parliament? There's no citation for this. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 11:57, 19 January 2012 (UTC)
