§ Mr. Hare
This section makes it an offence to watch or beset a place in such a manner as to prevent persons proceeding on their lawful occasions. It does not apply to action which is lawful under the provisions of any law relating to trade unions or trade disputes. It is designed to preserve the liberty of the subject.163W
