HC Deb 01 May 1972 vol 836 c30W
Mr. Ron Lewis

asked the Secretary of of State for the Home Department how much dynamite has been found in this country to date where no responsibility can be traced; what action is intended by his Department on this matter; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Lane:

My right hon. Friend is notified by the police of thefts of explosives, but does not have the full information for which the hon. Member asks. Finds of explosives, whether stolen or not, are notified as necessary by the police direct to the service authorities under standing arrangements for the disposal of the explosives in the interests of public safety.
