HC Deb 29 January 1930 vol 234 cc1022-3W

asked the Home Secretary whether, in view of the number of accidents from air-guns amongst small children, he will consider the desirability of limiting their use to the holders of a duly issued licence?


If the mischiefs to which the Firearms Act, 1920, was directed by Parliament were found to arise as regards air-guns, power already exists to impose the requirement of a fire-arm certificate, but those mischiefs do not arise and I do not think sufficient ground exists for proposing legislation to set up a licensing system with other objects in view.
