HC Deb 28 May 1968 vol 765 c201W
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.
