HC Deb 20 April 1950 vol 474 cc301-2
21. Sir Ralph Glyn

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether, in examining the possibility of strengthening the law in relation to the possession of knuckle-dusters and other offensive weapons, he will consider whether the powers of the police to arrest persons found in possession of offensive weapons need to be reinforced

Mr. Ede
