Why did George grenville allow customs officers to obtain general writs of assistance?

Question asked by: knowitall

This is a good question.

Presuamably the answer is to give them more rights and to help them out - though I don't really know the answer here.

Anyone else done in this history that can help? If so add a comment with the answer!
