To ask the Scottish Government what the (a) average time and (b) longest time has been to process an application for an air weapon certificate that was received by the 31 October 2016 deadline.
Answered by: Michael Matheson 26 January 2017
The information requested is not held centrally. Responsibility for processing and determining air weapon certificate applications lies with the Police Service of Scotland. Each application is dealt with on its own merits and the police do not track processing times on individual cases.
