HL Deb 31 January 1983 vol 438 cc671-2WA
Lord Northfield

asked Her Majesty's Government: When the Deer Act 1963 will be revised in Statutes in Force.

The Lord Chancellor

I am advised that theStatutes in Force Cumulative Supplement for the group Animals (ISBN 0 11 804257 2) which was published on 20th May 1982 revises the text of the Deer Act 1963 up to 1st March 1982 by setting out amendments to that Act made up to that date. No material amendments have been made since 1st March 1982. Printer's copy for a revised re-issue of the Act dated 1st January 1983, incorporating the amendments in the Cumulative Supplement, has been prepared and it is expected that this re-issue will be published by Her Majesty's Stationery Office in April or May 1983.
