§ 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.
