Motion text

That this House recognises the importance of the success of Michael Gault in the pistol shooting events in the Commonwealth Games in Melbourne; and, conscious of the fact that most of his training and that of other world-class pistol shooters has had to take place outside Great Britain due to the gun laws, calls on the Home Secretary to exempt the sport of Olympic pistol shooting from the handgun ban to allow athletes for the London Olympics to train at home.
