§ Mr. Ron Davies
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if in the light of recent disclosures of the contents of the report of Sir John McKay's working party on the administration of the Firearms Act 1968 he will now place a copy of the report in the Library; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Giles Shaw
[pursuant to his reply, 5 June 1985, c. 159]: It would be inappropriate to do so. The report of Sir John McKay's working party on the control of firearms, prepared in 1972, was an internal document. Its main conclusions and recommendations were, however, incorporated in the 1973 Green Paper, "The Control of Firearms in Great Britain" (Cmnd. 5297).
