HC Deb 05 December 1996 vol 286 c744W
13. Ms Corston

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will make a statement on the licensing of air weapons. [6160]

Mr. Maclean

High-powered air weapons already require a firearms certificate in the same way as other firearms. Low-powered air weapons do not, but there are restrictions on their possession and use by young people under 17.
