To ask the Scottish Government what target time it has set for the police to issue air gun licences and whether Police Scotland is sufficiently resourced to deal with this matter efficiently and effectively.


Answered by Michael Matheson (02/06/2016): Decisions about resourcing the firearms licensing system, including the licensing of air weapons, rest with the Chief Constable of the Police Service of Scotland. The Scottish Government has not set targets for the operation of the system. We have, however, worked closely with Police Scotland throughout the development of the new licensing regime and they have been clear that air weapon licensing will be deliverable.
