§ Mr. Arthur Lewis
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he will introduce amending legislation making it a criminal offence for anyone found to have entered any premises which he does not own or have legal tenancy; and that, whether or not he consumes food and drink belonging to the legal and lawful occupier, he will be guilty of the offence of being on the premises without authorisation.
