§ Mr. John Fraser
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department where plastic bullets are stored in Lambeth and in what quantities; what officers in Lambeth police district are trained in the use of plastic bullets; at what level decisions are made for their deployment; and what criteria are used in reaching a decision for deployment.
§ Mr. Douglas Hogg
It is not the practice to disclose where in the Metropolitan police district plastic baton rounds are stored or which officers have been trained in their use. As to the other points raised, I would refer the hon. Member to the reply which my right hon. Friend gave to a question by my hon. Friend the Member for Lancashire, West (Mr. Hind) on 19 May 1986 (Official Report, columns 15–16.)
