HC Deb 29 April 1982 vol 22 cc338-9W
Mr. Freeson

asked the Secretary of State for Defence if he will publish the guidelines issued to the Army on the use of plastic bullets.

Mr. Wiggin

It is not the practice to publish detailed operational instructions given to members of the security forces. The broad principles governing the use of baton rounds remain as set out by my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland on 30 October last year.—[Vol. 10, c. 484.]
