Confusion with Long title[edit]

I removed the following text:

...summaries the intention of the legislature in passing the measure; thus the preamble of the statute, of which the title is the Children Act 1908, is as follows: "An Act to consolidate and amend the Law relating to the Protection of Children and Young Persons, Reformatory anbill deals with the expediency of the bill, calls witnesses for the allegation in the preamble, and petitions against the bill are then heard; if the preamble is negatived the bill is dropped, if affirmed it is gone through clause by clause. On unopposed private bills the preamble has also to be proved, more especially with regard to whether the clauses required by the standing orders are inserted (see May, Parliamentary Practice, 1906, pp. 483, 808 seq.).

Despite the references, I am quite certain that this refers to the title of a bill, not the preamble. Preambles start with "Whereas...".

Because I don;t know what the source (Parliamentary Practice) is talking about, I will refrain from adding it to the article "long title". Note of this will be placed on that article's talk page. 21:51, 16 December 2005 (UTC)[reply]

American Constitution Preamble[edit]

I don't see a reason for it to be on this page, when there is an entire page for it elsewhere. It is no more important than the preamble to any other constituion.
