State Powers to enter the family home

I list below, purely for information, some independent and Home Office data which reveals the nature and the extent to which the state may exercise powers to enter and violate the sanctity of the family home.

Whether the nature and extent of such powers have any place in our democracy or are more in keeping with that which existed in Eastern Europe during the Brezniev era, I leave to others to judge for themselves.
