HC Deb 06 February 1941 vol 368 c1093W
Squadron-Leader Errington

asked the Home Secretary whether he has ensured that there is a sufficient supply of firearms easily accessible so that all police and special police can, in emergency, be adequately armed?

Mr. H. Morrison

It is not intended to arm all members of the police forces, but steps have been taken to supply the police with adequate numbers of firearms for their own protection and to enable them to carry out any police duties for which arms may be required.
