(3) Has CS gas or similar substance been used in the AMC for the purposes of protection or offence; if so, how many times has it been used; if not, how many times has the use of it been requested, but denied or not responded to.

(4) What is the brand of the CS gas or similar substance used in the AMC.

Mr Gentleman: The answer to the member’s question is as follows:
