§ Lieut. - Commander KENWORTHY
asked the Home Secretary how many permits for the possession of firearms have been applied for under the pro visions of the Firearms Act, 1920; how many of these permits have been refused; and how many prosecutions have taken place under this Act?
§ Mr. SHORTT
The Act only came into force at the beginning of this month, and it is far too soon to begin to collect information as to the number of permits granted or refused. I have not yet heard of any prosecutions.
