Game Act 1970

1970 CHAPTER 13

An Act to amend the Game Act 1831; and to repeal section 10 of the Revenue Act 1911.

[26th March 1970]

[F1Whereas the Game Act 1831 provides penalties for the killing and taking of game on certain days and during certain seasons, for laying poison to kill game, and for the buying, selling or possession of game out of season, and the said penalties, by reason of the fall in the value of money, are now inadequate:

And whereas the sale out of season of live game birds for rearing or exhibition purposes ought to be permitted:

And whereas the invention of modern devices for the freezing and keeping of meat has rendered inappropriate the prohibition on the possession of game out of season:]
