HC Deb 09 November 1978 vol 957 c279W
Mr. Arthur Lewis

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department, in view of the growing practice of sheikhs and other high ranking Arabs travelling with guards carrying unlicensed firearms, what action he intends to take.

Mr. Merlyn Rees

None. The unauthorised possession of firearms is an offence against the law, the enforcement if which is a matter for the police.
