HC Deb 10 February 1972 vol 830 c413W
Mr. Kilfedder

asked the Minister of State for Defence how many members of the Ulster Defence Regiment are permitted to bear arms to and from duty, and retain them while at home for their personal protection against the Irish Republican Army.

Mr. G. Johnson Smith

It would not be in the public interest to reveal details of the precautions now being taken in response to potential threats to U.D.R. personnel at home.
