asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department on what date and for what purpose the police raided 17A Maxwell Road, S.W.6; what action they took to ascertain the character backgrounds and criminal records, if any, of the occupants; what 128W was found as a result of this raid; and what prosecutions are to take place.
§ Mr. Taverne
The premises were searched on 27th February on a warrant under the Explosive Substances Act, 1883. The Commissioner of Police is satisfied that appropriate inquiries were made before the warrant was applied for. No explosives were found.
