"Statutes and Statutory Construction" is a set of treatises, which were originally written long ago by a man named Sutherland and which are still being revised and updated by other authors. Legislative intent is one of the topics it covers.

Your question is hard to understand, but it sounds like homework for a law student, or a research assignment for someone working at a law firm. This site isn't here to do other people's work for them.
