HC Deb 03 February 1983 vol 36 c159W
21. Mr. Adley

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will make an analysis of the level of offences involving firearms in the past 10 years.

Mr. Whitelaw

An analysis of the numbers of notifiable offences recorded by the police in which firearms were reported to have been used is published annually in "Criminal Statistics, England and Wales". Chapter 3 of the volume for 1981 (Cmnd. 8668) gives statistics for the period 1971/1981.
