The Hon. CARMEL TEBBUTT: On 27 May the Hon. John Tingle asked a question without notice concerning the number of handgun licences restored following suspension and revocation as a result of apprehended violence orders and telephone interim orders being granted. The Minister for Police has now provided the following response:
NSW Police has advised me that the number of licences restored in relation to this revocation ground is not available in an automated format, and would require a manual check of all records which would take many weeks to complete. Given the current licence renewal period, this would represent an unwarranted diversion of Registry resources.
