HC Deb 01 August 1951 vol 491 c192W
15. Mr. Peter Freeman

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies what form of licence is required for the use of muzzle loaders in Tanganyika Territory; how many licences have been issued for the use of these weapons in the last two years; and, in view of the suffering caused to animals when injured by such weapons, if he will ban their use for this purpose.

Mr. J. Griffiths

I am making inquiry of the Governor and am consulting him on the issue raised in the last part of the Question. I will write to my hon. Friend when I have considered the matter in the light of the Governor's reply.
