Some of you will be aware that the Home Office is planning to legislate to restrict access to knives and edged weapons, as well as corrosive substances and firearms.  Section 15 of the draft Offensive Weapons Bill introduces controls over the online sale of knives. 

Many of the tools collected and purchased online by TATHS members have sharp edges and there is a risk that these might be caught by the legislation., I have persuaded my MP to write to the Home Office to explain the problem and I attach a copy of the Minister's reply.  It gives some comfort that our concerns will be taken into account, but as ever, much will depend on the final wording of the legislation.
