A fully-searchable database of all Acts of Parliament, covering England, Scotland and Wales from medieval times to the present day

The UK Statutes database contains the full text of all Acts of Parliament in England, Wales and Scotland as enacted, from 1235 to the present day. UK Statutes is the only statute-law database to contain Scottish Acts of Parliament and repealed legislation.

Contents of Justis UK Statutes:

  • Acts of Parliament (United Kingdom) 1707 to present
  • Acts of Parliament (Scotland) 1999 to present
  • Acts of the Northern Ireland Assembly from 2000
  • Church Assembly and General Synod Measures 1920 to present
  • Measures of the National Assembly for Wales from 2008 to present
  • Acts of Parliament (England) 1235 to 1706

The data is sourced from Ruffhead’s edition of Statutes at Large up to 1866 and henceforth from HMSO. We note the effect of legislative amendments since publication as well as add the explanatory notes from the time they were introduced in 1999.

All Acts appear as enacted, with links to amended and amending legislation allowing the user to trace the development of the law. A notable feature of the Justis software is the JustCite tabs, which provides users with details of amended and amending legislation. Amendment data is taken from the Chronological Table of Statutes 1994 and the Annual Table of Effects for 1995 to 1997. From 1998 onwards the amendments are added by our own editorial team.

UK Statutes can be searched in conjunction with Justis UK Statutory Instruments to find the SIs that are related to the Act of Parliament you are searching for.
