Firearms (Amendment) Bill — Prohibition of small-calibre pistols — 16 Jun 1997

Considered in Committee.

I beg to move amendment No. 7, in page 1, line 8, leave out

'the words "a small calibre-pistol" shall cease to have effect.'

That quotation appears in the Library's brief, "Prohibiting Handguns: the Firearms (Amendment) Bill", dated 9 June 1997, which I recommend to those participating in the debate. It is a fair, broad and detailed summary of past and present legislation in that area.

Question put , That the amendment be made:--

The Committee divided: Ayes 123, Noes 333.
