§ 38. Mr. E. Fletcher
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether, in view of the dangers resulting from the use of air-guns, he will take steps to prohibit their sale.
§ Mr. R. A. Butler
No. As at present informed I can see no reason for amending the existing law, which prohibits the purchase or hire of air weapons by persons under the age of 17, but imposes no other restrictions on their use.
