broken up into subjects, and treated with groups of analogous Acts in a series of chapters; the settlement of disputes under several Acts has been treated in a separate chapter ; and penalties have been dealt with in tabular form in an Appendix.

Pains have been taken to bring the book up to date and to ensure accuracy, but slips and omissions are very likely to have occurred, and the author will be grateful for the help of his readers in discovering them.
