§ Mr. Murphy
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what representations he has recived seeking the introduction of regulations to control the ownership and use of crossbows; and if he will make a statement.

Since January 1985 we have received 43 letters about crossbows from hon. Members, 31 from members of the public and one from the Association of District Councils. I refer my hon. Friend to the reply given to a question from my hon. Friend the Member for Plymouth, Drake (Miss Fookes) on 3 February at column 5.
