February 2012

Request:

I am writing to obtain details of the use of powers of entry by your authority under any of the relevant Acts or items of secondary legislation during the period 2008 - 2011, excluding Trading Standards investigations.
I wish to obtain details of:
•         how many times such powers were used in the past three years,
•         the legislation they were requested under,
•         the criminal offence or allegation being investigated
•         the outcome of their use, if any.

Outcome:

No information held

Response:

You have asked for information regarding the use of powers of entry held by The National Archives. I can confirm that The National Archives does not hold any powers of entry and therefore the information you request is not held.
