HC Deb 13 February 1865 vol 177 c224

moved for leave to introduce a Bill to extend the powers now vested in justices of the peace to grant licences to deal in game to the divisional magistrates within the police district of Dublin metropolis.


reminded the Chief Secretary for Ireland that during last Session he had complained that Sir Henry Brownrigg had put an interpretation upon the Poaching Amendment Act entirely different from that put upon it by the English Courts; the consequence of which was that it was practically inoperative in Ireland. The right hon. Baronet had held out some expectation that Sir Henry Brownrigg would be requested to revise his decision; but he (Captain Arch-dall) had recently ascertained that the instructions to the police as to apprehending persons carrying game or poaching materials remained unaltered. He trusted that the right hon. Baronet would give the subject his earliest attention.

Motion agreed to.

Bill to extend the powers now vested in Justices of the Peace to grant Licences to Deal in Game to the Divisional Magistrates within the Police District of Dublin, Metropolis, ordered to be brought in by Sir ROBERT PEEL and Mr. BARING.

Bill presented, and read 1° [Bill 16].
