HC Deb 01 March 1973 vol 851 c399W
Mr. Redmond

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what representations have been made to him regarding the import of replica firearms; and what replies he has sent.

Mr. R. Carr

I have received a number of representations from hon. Members and others suggesting that the sale or import of realistic replica firearms should be banned, and I have replied that this issue is being considered in connection with the current review of the whole of the law relating to firearms. I would also refer my hon. Friend to my answer today to a Question by the hon. Member for Bradford, East (Mr. Edward Lyons).
