HC Deb 23 June 1988 vol 135 c670W
25. Mr. Colvin

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what is his estimate of the number of self-loading rifles with an integral five-round magazine, that will have to be surrendered under the terms of the Firearms (Amendment) Bill., and what total compensation will be payable to the owners.

Mr. Douglas Hogg

Insufficient information exists to enable a reliable estimate to be made. However, there are very few models of this kind on the market and, traditionally, they have been uncommon.
