§ Mr. Buchanan-Smith
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department how he will dispose of the firearms and other weapons surrendered to police during the recent amnesty.
§ Mr. Elystan Morgan
This is a matter for chief officers of police, but my right hon. Friend has advised them to hand service weapons over to the military authorities; to make antiques and other items of interest available to the national museums; to sell to the trade any shotguns, or other appropriate weapons, and to destroy the remainder.
