HC Deb 02 March 1983 vol 38 c144W
Mr. Wigley

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what guidance is issued to the police as to the use of short-barrel 12 bore shotguns.

Mr. Mayhew

It would not be in the interests of police effectiveness to make public the guidance that has been issued to chief officers of police about the use of specific weapons, including shotguns.
