On 24th November, in answer to MQ 2014/4196 I was told that the gun amnesty figures would not be released until December.  The figures were, however released to the press on the 24th November for publication on 25th November.  Information was either wilfully withheld from Assembly Members or Members were given an incorrect answer to an MQ.  This is unacceptable.  Will you look at procedures for responding to MQs and assure me that such misinformation and bad practice will not be repeated?

At the time of writing the response to MQ4196 / 2014 the approximate date given was the most accurate information available to us. However, the MPS subsequently secured 25th November as release date. I am sorry that this was not included in the answer as it had not been made available to me at the time of writing.
