To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department (1) how many firearms, by category, were held by each police force in each of the last five years; [61849]

(2) how many firearms have been ordered by each police force over the last 12 months. [61848]

I am advised by the Association of Chief Police Officers that this information is not held centrally. It could be collected only at disproportionate cost.
