The season kicked off on the 18th August.
It was on the 4th that Parliament in London passed An Act to further promote the Revision of the Statute Law by repealing Enactments which have ceased to be in force or have become unnecessary. aka The Statute Law Revision (Scotland) Act 1906 (6 Edw 7 c 38).
