HC Deb 28 October 1983 vol 47 c222W
Mr. Cartwright

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what representations he has received seeking tighter controls over the sale of ammunition for shotguns; and what response he has given.

Mr. Hurd

We have replied that this would require legislation amending the Firearms Act 1968, that we do not intend this at present, but that we would carefully consider the suggestion in any future review of the controls.
