HC Deb 02 March 1989 vol 148 cc271-2W
83. Mrs. Maureen Hicks

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what consideration is being given to giving the police the power to enter houses without warrants where excessively long or noisy parties are being held.

Mr. Douglas Hogg

None. Police powers to enter private premises without warrant must be strictly limited. They are set out in section 17 of the Police and Criminal Evidence Act 1984.
