HC Deb 12 May 1994 vol 243 c228W
Mr. Blair

To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer how many illegal weapons were seized by Her Majesty's Customs and Excise in each year since 1979.

Sir John Cope

Customs do not hold central records of seizures of illegal weapons prior to 1983. The table sets out the number of illegal weapons seized by Customs and Excise nationally in each financial year since 1983–84.
