CHAPTER VIII FROM 1825 TO 1876

§ 24. Repeal of all "Hovering Laws"

By the end of the second quarter of the nineteenth century the hovering laws had become very numerous and complicated. As already noted, the Chairman of the Revenue Boards had recommended a consolidation of these laws in 1816.1 As new methods and devices for smuggling arose, as larger and different types of craft were employed in its practice, and as the distance from which it was carried on at sea was increased, legislation underwent many sweeping changes. New acts were passed without repealing the old ones. Parliament legislated rapidly to meet new conditions as they arose, without regard to laws that were already on the statute books. This resulted in much duplication. A repealing act and simplified legislation were inevitable. This act was passed in the early years of the reign of George IV.2 It repealed practically all the laws from the Act of 5 Geo. I, c. XI, passed in 1718, to that of 59 Geo. III, c. 121, passed in 1819, inclusive.3
