HC Deb 15 February 1968 vol 758 cc399-400W
64. Mr. Kimball

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will make it clear in his publicity campaign that during the present fire-arms amnesty weapons can be handed in to gunsmiths as well as the police; and if he will advise the police not to destroy weapons of antique value.

Mr. Taverne:

No. The amnesty is only for those who surrender illegally held weapons or ammunition to the police. My right hon. Friend has already given suitable advice to the police about antique weapons.
