HC Deb 05 February 1998 vol 305 cc766-7W
Mr. John D. Taylor

To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland for what reasons the written question on licensed firearms, tabled by the right hon. Member for Strangford on 22 January 1998, for answer on 28 January 1998 was not answered on that day; and if she will make a statement. [27098]

Mr. Ingram

It is regretted that the written question referred to was not answered on 28 January as it was necessary to refer the question to a number of branches in the RUC, which required a manual search of records.
