The English Parliament

1719 – The English Parliament repealed the Schism Act, an extreme High Tory measure to prevent nonconformists and Catholics from educating their own children. Queen Anne died on the day the Act was to take effect in 1714. It was repealed because her successor, King George I, did nothing to enforce it.
