PREFACE.

IN preparing this edition of the Legislative Enactments of Ceylon, we have in accordance with instructions, adopted the following principles.

Where an Ordinance has been amended by a later Ordinance or Ordinances, such amendments have been incorporated verbatim in the principal Ordinance and are printed in italics with marginal references to the amending Ordinances.

Unless an amending Ordinance is entirely incorporated in a principal Ordinance it will be found printed in small type under the principal Ordinance, where also will be found printed all the Ordinances relative to the subject of the principal Ordinance, so that the reader is enabled to peruse in one place the whole of the written law on any particular subject.

Such amending Ordinances and Ordinances cognate to the subject of the principal Ordinance having been printed in small type under the principal Ordinance, their numbers and titles only are given where they would ordinarily appear in chronological sequence, with a reference to the principal Ordinance in which they are incorporated or under which they are printed in their entirety and to the pages where they will be found.

We have omitted all Ordinances of a purely personal character : e.g., the several Naturalization Ordinances prior to Ordinance No. 21 of 1890, Ordinances relating to Supply and the like, and Ordinances which have expired by effluxion of time.

Sir BRUCE BURNSIDE, late Chief Justice of Ceylon, has undertaken the preparation of an Index to the present edition of Legislative Enactments.
