§ Mr. David Steel
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what criteria were used when deciding upon the level of increases in fees in respect of the issue and renewal of a firearms certificate.
§ Mr. Whitelaw
I refer the right hon. Gentleman to the recent report of the fees review and the letter I wrote to my hon. Friend the Member for Harborough (Mr. Farr) on 28 July, copies of which have been placed in the Library of the House. However, the Government have decided not to increase fee levels for the time being, for the reasons given in my reply to a question from the hon. Member for Harborough on 10 November.—[Vol. 31,c. 149.]
