§ COLONEL EGERTON LEIGH
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department, Whether there is any power to prevent the sale of catapults, or to take them away from anyone who might use them?
MR. ASSHETON CROSS
, in reply, said, that the use of catapults was regulated by 2 & 3 Vict. c. 47. As to taking them away from those who might use them, their use would be an offence in any public place in towns; and by the "Towns Police Clauses Act," 10 & 11 Vict, c. 29, it would be an offence in any urban sanitary district to which that Act applied. It was also a punishable offence to use them anywhere within the Royal Parks.
