S5W-18395: Gordon Lindhurst (Lothian)

Scottish Conservative and Unionist Party

Date lodged: 24 August 2018

To ask the Scottish Government what discussions it has had with Police Scotland in response to figures showing that the number of grenades being seized in the UK has risen sharply, with the largest of the hauls in 2018 having taken place in Scotland.

Grenades are weapons with the potential to cause widespread harm and the removal of a number of devices from circulation will help keep our communities safe.

I plan to meet with senior representatives of Police Scotland, including the newly appointed Chief Constable, on a regular basis and to discuss a wide range of issues.
