HC Deb 27 October 1980 vol 991 c77W
Mr. Kilroy-Silk

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if it would be possible for a chief constable to order the use of CS gas on occasions other than those covered in the statement of the then Home Secretary on 20 May 1965, such as for public disorder.

Mr. Brittan:

The statement of 20 May 1965 still applies.
