§ 67. Mr. GILBERT
asked the Home Secretary whether any men of the Metropolitan Police Force are being trained in the use of firearms; whether it is proposed to arm any of the men with revolvers; and if he can make any statement on the subject?
§ Mr. SHORTT
I would refer the hon. Member to the answer given yesterday in reply to a question on this subject by the hon. Member for Pontypool (Mr. Griffiths).
§ Mr. BILLING
Can the right hon. Gentleman say whether it is proposed to issue ordinary revolvers or automatic pistols to the police, and, if the latter, is he aware that there is considerable danger in their employment?
