Is there any reasons why the years 1914, 1916 and 1918 are duplicated in the article? If there is, then the section headings need to be made clearer to point out the differences between them. If not, then the sections need to be merged to remove the duplicated entries they contain. Can anyone see any reason to retain them? Road Wizard 20:12, 21 April 2006 (UTC)
The years that you've mentioned appear more than once because they were split between two different parliamentary sessions. This is actually quite common but is not immediately apparent in all the various lists because they're still incomplete.
It's necessary to provide sessional details because this forms the basis of how individual Acts are cited, but it does unfortunately mean that it's difficult to make a neat list that's clearly presented. However, the current method of presentation could no doubt be improved upon. As the lists are now being worked upon by a few people, it will hopefully be possible to get the overall presentation improved upon in the near future.
That's certainly the approach that I've used when trying to split other years. However, I'm thinking that the best method might be to use a colour-coded table. I haven't as yet put any thought into how that might work in practice, though!
