This Digest has been prepared in the Department of the Local Government Board by direction of the President, the Right Hon. James Stansfeld, M.P., pursuant to a promise given by him to Parliament during the last session, when a question was raised with respect to the consolidation of the Sanitary Laws.

The language used is, mainly, that of the Statutes themselves, stripped as far as practicable of techical phraseology, and the several provisions relating to the same subject have been brought together under an arrangement of headings which will facilitate reference. No attempt has been made to construe the several enactments which appear to be in force, or to interpret any doubtful or contradictory passages contained in them.

The work is intended as a digest only, and must not, therefore, in any way be regarded as an authoritative interpretation of the law,

The orders which have been issued by the Board, prescribing the mode of appointment and the duties of Medical Officers of Health and Inspectors of Nuisances under the Public Heath Act, 1872, will be found in the Appendix.
