HC Deb 29 May 1922 vol 154 c1740W
Lieut.-Colonel ARCHER-SHEE

asked the Home Secretary whether armed men from Ireland are landing in English ports; and if he can give an assurance that every effort is being made to prevent persons from illegally importing arms into this country?


I have no evidence that this is so. It is illegal to possess firearms without a certificate or other authority under the Firearms Act, 1920, and the police enforce the Act if it is found to be infringed.
