HC Deb 07 December 1971 vol 827 c295W
51. Mr. Stallard

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department when he will be in a position to report on the review being made by the Northern Ireland Government of licensed guns.

Mr. Sharples

I understand that so far the review has led to the temporary surrender of over 1,500 weapons and the permanent surrender of over 700 weapons. The interviewing of owners of weapons is continuing as fast as the commitments of the Royal Ulster Constabulary permit.
