HC Deb 29 March 1973 vol 853 c369W
21. Mr. Hardy

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will now seek powers to prohibit or restrict the sale of guns by mail order.

Mr. Carlisle

I have received no evidence of abuse of the law through mail order sales of firearms but this is a matter which can be considered in the context of the provisional proposals which my right hon. Friend intends to publish in the near future.
