AND OTHER DOCUMENTS
EXPLANATORY NOTES AND CASES &c, THE SEVERAL ACTS
Printed at the University Press by
ROBERT MACLEHOSE, 153 WEST NILE STREET.
The present volume has been prepared under the authority of the Water Committee of the Glasgow Corporation Water Commissioners, and is, as nearly as possible, in the same form as the collection of Acts and other Documents relating to the Glasgow Corporation Tramways.
The first part of the volume contains all the Acts which have been obtained by the Commissioners relative to the water undertaking, arranged in chronological order, and Notes have been added to assist in connecting the provisions applicable to each matter. The Appendix contains the general public and local Acts incorporated with the Glasgow Corporation Water Acts, or the provisions of which are applicable to the water undertaking; the clauses of the Acts of the Glasgow Water Company and the Gorbals Gravitation Water Company, so far as these appear to be still in force, or have not been superseded by the provisions of the Acts obtained by the Commissioners, or the provisions of the Waterworks Clauses Acts 1847 and 1863; the Byelaws made by the Commissioners on 16th July 1863 ; and various Agreements and other Documents relating to the water undertaking.
Where the provisions of any Act have been repealed or altered this is indicated in the Notes, and sections which have been entirely repealed are printed in italics. The Notes also contain what it is hoped may be useful information on the subject of the various Acts and Documents embraced in the volume. A full Index of matters, and a Table of the decisions and authorities referred to in the Notes, have also been added.
The Notes and Index have been prepared, and the whole of the Acts and other Documents carefully collated, by my assistant, Mr. Bowers.
