HC Deb 20 February 1986 vol 92 c300W
50. Mr. Hannam

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what action he proposes to take to strengthen the law against organised group squatting in commercial and residential properties.

Mr. Mellor

We have no plans to amend the criminal law relating to trespass on premises, but my right hon. Friend would be prepared to consider giving support to a measure making it an offence, without reasonable excuse, to enter residential premises as a trespasser.
