HC Deb 17 March 1919 vol 113 c1708
21. Colonel YATE

asked the Secretary of State for India on what terms will licences to carry arms be issued under the new Regulations in India; and will the carrying of revolvers be permitted?

The PRESIDENT of the BOARD of EDUCATION (Mr. Herbert Fisher)

The detailed conditions on which licences to carry arms will be issued have still to be worked out by the Government of India. The Secretary of State understands that for revolvers and pistols licences will be issued only in cases of real necessity and to persons of approved character, and that the licence fee will be raised for such weapons and also for breech-loading rifles and smooth bores.
