HC Deb 07 December 1961 vol 650 cc181-2W
55. Mr. Lindsay

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he will arrange for the weapons handed in under the recent amnesty, and not required by the police or Armed Services, to be sold to the trade by tender, in view of the fact that there are export markets for the pistols and revolvers which constitute the majority of the weapons surrendered.

Mr. R. A. Butler

I am in consultation with my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for War about the disposal of usable weapons not required by the Armed Services.
