Print copies are good if you want to find the text of the act as it was originally enacted. It is harder for publishers to keep pace with the subsequent developments of amendments, partial repeals etc. (Holders of an Oxford SSO are encouraged to use one of the subscription databases - see links in larger box - to find the up to date text of any piece of UK legislation.) However, if you use their updating services Halsbury's Statutes and Current Law Statutes (1947 onwards) services offer the best. Both these can be found in the KZ section on Level 2.
Historic (unamended) versions
These, back to the mid nineteenth century are on Level 1. If you need an earlier act, please ask a member of staff for assistance.
