§ 24. Sir W. de FRECE
asked the Home Secretary whether, in view of the provisions made in the Criminal Justice Bill for the appointment of probation officers, any approximate scale of salary has been settled by his Department as suitable to the post; and whether it is suggested that there should be relative uniformity of payment in this respect?
§ Sir W. JOYNSON-HICKS
The Criminal Justice Bill will give power to the Secretary of State to make rules for fixing the scales of salary to be paid to probation officers. In framing these rules the scales of salary recommended by the Departmental Committee of 1922, which have already been adopted in London and in some other places, will be taken as a basis. I will send my hon. Friend a copy of this Report.
