HC Deb 12 May 1943 vol 389 cc607-8
18. Mr. Riley

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether chief probation officers for Jamaica and Trinidad, as recommended in the recent Stockdale Report, have been appointed?

Colonel Stanley

No, Sir. Although my right hon. Friend the Home Secretary has been most helpful and the National Association of Probation Officers have given every assistance, it has not so far been possible to secure the services of suitable candidates for these two appointments. Efforts to do this are, however, being continued.
