The primary aim of The Statutes Project is quite simple: to put the entire corpus of English / British parliamentary law online, for free, in multiple and easily reusable formats.
This also means producing reliable, and freely usable, metadata, finding and visualizing the relationships between the acts, and investigating ways of digitally analysing the texts.
The bulk of the content has been taken from digitized volumes over one hundred years old, and therefore out of copyright and in the public domain.
All texts, information and whathaveyou are provided as-is, and absolutely no guarantees or reassurances as to truth, accuracy or punctuation are offered. Don’t even think of citing it in front of a judge. Or a barrister. Or even some guy down the pub.
