HC Deb 07 July 1961 vol 643 c174W
Mr. McAdden

asked the Minister of Labour how many officials of his Department are authorised to enter private residential and landed property without the necessity of obtaining the owner's or occupier's permission.

Mr. Hare

There are 415 factory inspectors who are empowered to enter a private residence which is part of the same building as a factory to check fire warning arrangements; and 181 wages inspectors who are empowered to enter premises provided by an employer as living accommodation for workers, but not the homes of outworkers.
