HC Deb 07 November 1978 vol 957 c118W
Mr. George

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he is satisfied with the operation of legislation relating to the dissemination and sale of firearms; and what changes he proposes to make to legislation on the subject.

Mr. Merlyn Rees

I have no reason to believe that the present controls under the Firearms Act 1968 are ineffective, but I have it in mind to strengthen them when a suitable legislative opportunity occurs, in ways which would affect the purchase and possession of certain firearms.
