HC Deb 06 June 1996 vol 278 c553W
19. Mrs. Helen Jackson

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what plans he has to review his Department's policy in respect of the issue of(a) shotgun and (b) other firearm licences to those aged under 18 years. [30286]

Mr. Maclean

Lord Cullen's inquiry into the circumstances of the tragedy at Dunblane will also examine wider issues including the controls on firearms. On 21 March the Government announced a review of firearms controls in Great Britain. As part of that review, the Government have provided detailed evidence to Lord Cullen's inquiry. Any changes to the firearms controls must await the outcome of that inquiry.
