Dr. Kumar

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many weapons, and of what type, have been handed in(a) in total and (b) to each UK police force as part of the national gun amnesty. [112720]

Mr. Bob Ainsworth

Police forces will be providing final gun amnesty figures at the end of May. This will include a detailed breakdown of the items handed in. However, latest police estimates indicate that over 40,000 guns will have been handed in during the amnesty, along with nearly a million rounds of ammunition and 5,896 other weapons.
