Volume 495: debated on Tuesday 7 July 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many people were arrested at airports for firearms offences in the last 12 months. (284107)

The data requested are not available.

The arrests collection held by the Home Office covers arrests for recorded crime (notifiable offences) recorded by the police forces in England and Wales, broken down by police force area, offence class and age group of arrestee. From these centrally reported data, it is not possible to separately identify firearms offences from within these offence groups.

Information on the specific location of arrests does not form a part of this collection.
