Interregnum legislation

Reconsider this policy. The House of Commons executed the King and disbanded the House of Lords in 1649. They were not published as "Public General Acts", but perhaps use the uniform title "Acts" instead of "Ordinances." --Deborah J. Leslie (talk) 17:25, 7 July 2015 (EDT)

Acts of Parliament during the Interregnum did not receive royal assent, and are therefore not considered Acts of Parliament. Interregnum parliaments styled them ordinances until 1649, after which they styled them acts. Consider all interregnum legislation to be ordinances in formulating uniform titles, regardless of whether the source is styled ordinance or act.
