According to the preface of the inventory created by the National Archives, these statutes were found during an reorganisation of the repository. Most likely they were originally part of police documents. They were first included în the "Documents Collection" but since it was difficult to locate them within the collection, they were removed and a new collection comprised exclusively of statutes was created in 2005.
