§ Mr. Michael Brown
asked the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland how many officials for whom he has 434W responsibility currently have the power to enter and search premises, subject to statutory conditions; and, in each case, if he will indicate the statutory authority under which power is exercised.
§ Dr. Boyson
The information requested is as follows:
The Fisheries Act (N.I.) 1966—27 Officials.
The Companies (N.I.) Order 1978—It is not possible to quantify the number of officials involved, since it is a matter of designating an appropriate individual to enter and search in cases as they arise.
