Cabinet Office, and predecessors: Controller of Her Majesty's Stationery Office, Statutory Publications Unit: Registers of Statutory Rules and Orders and Statutory Instruments
Statutory Publications Office registers of statutory rules and orders dating from 1894 to 1946 and those of statutory instruments from 1947.
The registers contain details of the statutory instrument number, the responsible authority, subject heading and registering and publication dates.
Each volume is indexed up to 1938.
The registers are arranged in chronological order.
Under the Rules Publication Act 1893 statutory rules and orders and statutory instruments were classified as general or local and those in the general series were required to be published, this duty being initially the responsibility of the Editor of Statutory Rules and Orders. As the original rules, orders and instruments were received by the Editor from the various departments of state or other authorities their titles were entered in the registers. The responsibility and the registers passed to the Statutory Publications Office on its creation in 1947, and to the Controller of Her Majesty's Stationery Office division in the Cabinet Office in 1996.
