HC Deb 18 July 1984 vol 64 c195W
Mr. Gwilym Jones

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if Sir John McKay's working party report in 1972 into the administration of the Firearms Act 1968 in any way recommended or considered a necessity for a reduction in the numbers of shotguns, rifles, pistols or revolvers possessed by members of the public who hold licences issued by the appropriate chief officer of police under the Act.

Mr. Hurd

As explained in a previous answer to my hon. Friend, this internal report was not published, but its main criticisms and recommendations, including those relating to the hon. Gentleman's question, were published in the Green Paper "The Control of Firearms in Great Britain" (Cmnd. 5297).
