HC Deb 09 February 1979 vol 962 cc313-4W
Mr. Ron Thomas

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he is satisfied with the law relating to the sale and use of air rifles and pistols.

Mr. Merlyn Rees

In my view the present age limits for the purchase and possession of air weapons are too low. I have it in mind to put forward proposals to raise them when legislative opportunity offers.
