Distinguish between a consolidating statute and a codifying statute

A Consolidating Statute: is one which brings together into a single Act of Parliament the contents of a number of Acts in a particular subject for example the Companies Act, Cap 486.
• It does not usually change the law.

• A codifying statute: is one which arranges all existing law both statutory and case law in a particular subject into a statutory form.
• It brings together scattered laws in a particular subject for example the Sale of Goods Act, Cap 31.
