To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what steps are being taken to stop unauthorised entry into, and trading use of, empty commercial premises.

My right hon. Friend the Home Secretary published in November a consultation paper on squatting which considers the problems caused by the unlawful occupation of commercial premises. Copies of the document have been placed in the Library. The Government will decide what form any further action should take in the light of the responses to this consultation exercise.
