HC Deb 12 February 1973 vol 850 c270W
Mr. Arthur Lewis

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether, in view of the concern felt by the police at the increase in the importation of expensive and realistic replicas of revolvers, he will reconsider his decision not to impose a ban upon these articles.

Mr. Carlisle

My right hon. Friend is studying the results of a review of the law relating to firearms of all kinds conducted by the former Her Majesty's Chief Inspector of Constabulary, in the course of which the problem posed by replica firearms was considered. He is not yet in a position to announce conclusions.
