HC Deb 10 July 1952 vol 503 c112W
83. Mr. F. Willey

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he has considered the application of a bank in the West End of London to arm its employees with firearms; and whether he will make a statement.

Sir D. Maxwell Fyfe

It is for the chief officer of police concerned to decide, subpect to an appeal to Quarter Sessions, whether, in the circumstances of the particular case, an application for a Firearms Certificate should be granted. I am informed by the Commissioner of Police that he has received no recent application of the nature described in the Question.
