Mr Michael McNair-Wilson, Conservative MP for Walthamstow East, is urging the Home Secretary, Mr Carr to make it clear to people attacked by muggers what steps they are entitled to take in their own defence. He wants a ruling on whether people are entitled to use pepper-sprays or even CS gas cylinders in self-defence when attacked.
