The Statute Law Revision (Scotland) Act 1964 (c.80) was an Act of the Parliament of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland.

It was prepared by the Statute Law Committee. It further revised the Pre-Union Acts of the Parliament of Scotland which had previously revised by the Statute Law Revision (Scotland) Act 1906. Its purpose was to repeal obsolete enactments, to take into account changes in the law, and to facilitate the indexing of those Acts in the Chronological Table of the Statutes and the Index to the Statutes.

The Bill that became this Act was introduced into the House of Lords.

Provisions

Section 1 - Repeals of Acts

This section repealed a number of Pre-Union Acts of the Parliament of Scotland, which were declared to be obsolete, spent or unnecessary, or to have been superseded by other enactments, either in full or in part. Those Acts were listed in Schedule 1.

This section and Schedule 1 were repealed by section 1 of, and Part XI of the Schedule to, the Statute Law (Repeals) Act 1974.

The repeal of this section and Schedule 1 did not revive the Acts that they repealed.[3]

Section 2 - Citation of Acts

This section conferred short titles on the 164 Pre-Union Acts of the Parliament of Scotland which were not repealed by section 1. The short titles were listed in Schedule 2. It was expressly provided that those Acts could be cited by those short titles "without prejudice to any other mode of citation".

Those Acts may continue to be cited by those short titles notwithstanding the repeal of this section and Schedule 2.[4]

Section 3 - Construction of Schedules

This section provided that (the citation of the Acts in) the Schedules were to be construed as referring to the Revised Edition of the Acts of the Parliament of Scotland, prepared by the Statute Law Committee, printed in 1908.

Section 4

This section provided the Act's short title.
