The Submission of the Clergy Act 1533 (25 Hen 8 c 19) is an Act of the Parliament of the United Kingdom.

This Act was partly in force in Great Britain at the end of 2010.[3]

The whole Act, so far as unrepealed, except sections 1 and 3, was repealed by section 1 of, and Part II of the Schedule to the Statute Law (Repeals) Act 1969.

The repeal by the Statute Law (Repeals) Act 1969 of section 2 of the Act of Supremacy (1 Eliz 1 c 1) (1558) does not affect the continued operation, so far as unrepealed, of the Submission of the Clergy Act 1533.[4]

Section 1(3) of the Synodical Government Measure 1969 provides:

The provisions of sections 1 and 3 of the Submission of the Clergy Act 1533-

(a) requiring the Queen's Assent and Licence to the making, promulging and executing of Canons by the said Convocations, and
(b) providing that no Canons shall be made or put in execution by the said Convocations which are contrary or repugnant to the Royal prerogative or the customs, laws or statutes of this realm,

shall apply in like manner to the making, promulging and executing of Canons by the General Synod.

The "said Convocations" are the Convocations of Canterbury and York, which are referred to in section 1(1).
