The Statute Law Revision Act 1863 (26 & 27 Vict c 125) 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.[5]

The enactments which were repealed (whether for the whole or any part of the United Kingdom) by this Act were repealed so far as they extended to the Isle of Man[6] on 25 July 1991.[7]
