Halsbury's Annotations

This content is unique to LexisNexis


Halsbury's Statutes annotations are derived from the notes that appear in the volumes of Halsbury's Statutes of England and Wales. These notes provide precise information relating to:

* commencement
* parliamentary debates and, where appropriate, the background to legislation
* words and phrases defined statutorily
* judicial interpretation of statutes, whether of individual words and phrases, or sections as a whole
* cross-references to other provisions of the Act and to other relevant legislation
* subordinate legislation
* the origin of consolidating legislation

The notes are updated weekly to reflect changes brought about by new cases and new legislation. The notes are completely revised whenever a volume of Halsbury's Statutes is reissued in print.
