HC Deb 13 July 1961 vol 644 cc66-7W
66. Mr. Mason

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he has taken note of the numbers of Government officials who can, with little or no notice, enter private property and investigate people's private affairs; and, in view of the fact that this is an unnecessary extension of intrusion into indivdual privacy, what steps he intends to take to curtail it.

Sir E. Boyle

My right hon. and learned Friend has noted the details, but he cannot accept that there has been any unnecessary increase in authorities to enter private premises.
