HC Deb 20 March 1986 vol 94 c275W
50. Mr. Greg Knight

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he is yet in a position to announce whether he plans to introduce legislation to restrict the sale of crossbows; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Giles Shaw

My right hon. Friend is considering whether any steps could usefully be taken to try to prevent crossbows falling into the wrong hands. He is expected to reach conclusions shortly.
