§ Mr. Kilfedder
asked the Minister of State for Defence how much gelignite found recently has been identified as probably of Scottish origin and of Eire origin, respectively.
§ Mr. Blaker
In the period 1st November 1972 to 31st January 1973 the security forces in Northern Ireland seized 1341 lb. of gelignite known to have been manufactured in the Republic of Ireland and 54½ lb. of gelignite known to have been manufactured in Scotland. The place of manufacture is not necessarily the place where the terrorists obtain their explosives.
