§ 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.
