asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he can say when it is proposed to introduce the Bill for restrictive legislation respecting the carrying of firearms?


asked the Home Secretary when he proposes to in- troduce the non-controversial Bill, promised on the 13th January last, restricting the use of firearms; and whether he is aware that since that date three policemen have been killed by criminals armed with revolvers?


also asked the Home Secretary when he proposes to introduce the Bill restricting the sale of firearms, promised last Session?

I should be very glad to pass this Bill during this Session if time can be found, but I cannot make any definite statement at present.
