§ 3. Mr. J. Langford-Holt
asked the Minister of Food on how many occasions his food enforcement officers in Shrewsbury have, since 1945, taken action which, if taken by police officers, would require the production of a warrant.
§ Mr. Langford-Holt
Will the hon. Gentleman not reconsider this matter and try to get this information, in view of the fact that these gentlemen possess powers which are not possessed by the police, who are compelled to keep a very careful record of this sort of infringement of civil liberties?
§ Mr. Willey
To provide such information would be quite beyond our capacity. It would mean taking on more staff.
