Public Bill Committee: Offensive Weapons Bill: Delivery of bladed products to residential premises etc (6 Sep 2018)

Louise Haigh: ...its application. I think I am right in saying that the clause’s sole purpose is to ensure that the clause around sale to under-18s is absolutely safeguarded; as the Minister just described, the Bill, as it goes through, step by step, enforces previous clauses.
