HC Deb 25 October 1971 vol 823 cc258-9W
Mr. Stratton Mills

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will introduce legislation to amend the Explosives Act of 1875 to make it unlawful to manufacture, sell, or use, an explosive or component which cannot be traced to the source of origin.

Mr. Sharples

Studies on the marking of explosive material are in hand. My right hon. Friend will consider the need for legislation in the light of them.
