HC Deb 29 October 1987 vol 121 c373W
Mr. Steel

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will make a statement on the numbers of people that have been killed by automatic weapons from 1979 to date.

Mr. Douglas Hogg

The available information on homicides is published in table 4.3 of "Criminal Statistics, England and Wales, 1986", (Cm. 233) a copy of which is in the Library. The information collected centrally does not distinguish automatic weapons from other types of firearms.
