§ Mr. BURMAN
asked the Home Secretary how many firearm certificates have been issued under the Firearms Act, 1920; and if the Act is still being enforced?
§ Sir W. JOYNSON-HICKS
I have not complete records of the numbers issued, which would include many that have lapsed by efflux of time. Such information as I have shows that the restrictions imposed by the Act are operating more and more effectively as time goes by. The Act is being enforced.
