HL Deb 11 May 1983 vol 442 c546WA
Lord Northfield

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Whether the Scottish Game Act of 1772 still applies to deer: whether any such Acts prior to 1772 are still in force and whether any of them apply to deer.

The Minister of State, Scottish Office (The Earl of Mansfield)

The Game (Scotland) Act 1772 does not apply to deer; nor does any such Act made before that date.
