HC Deb 08 July 1965 vol 715 c289W
38. Mr. Loveys

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he will take steps to ensure that sodium chlorate is sold in such a form as to make it less effective as an explosive compound.

Mr. George Thomas

My right hon. and learned Friend has every sympathy with this proposal, but a practicable method has not yet been found. Action is being taken in other ways, however, to minimise the possibility of misuse of this substance.
