HC Deb 08 February 1988 vol 127 c38W
Mr. Wigley

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he will make a statement on his intentions as to whether to classify further shotgun cartridges under section 1 control.

Mr. Douglas Hogg

Our intentions are set out in the Firearms (Amendment) Bill, which lowers the diameter of shot above which a cartridge is subject to control under section 1 of the Firearms Act 1968 from 0.36 inch to 0.23 inch.
