§ Mr. Edward Davey
To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will review his decision not to issue guidance to paint spray manufacturers and retailers concerning age limits on the sale of their products. 
§ Mr. Charles Clarke
No. The Government believe that tackling graffiti is best achieved by dealing with offenders rather than penalising retailers for selling a product that they may, in all honesty, believe is being purchased for legitimate reasons. There are no statutory age limits for the purchase of these products and it is not therefore appropriate to issue guidance to retailers.
