HC Deb 14 June 1917 vol 94 cc1164-5W

asked the Home Secretary what percentage of juvenile delinquents up to and including the age of fourteen, released on probation under the Probation of Offenders Act, 1907, were charged with fresh offences during the period of probation for the years ending 31st December, 1913, and 31st December, 1916, respectively, in the seventeen towns to the clerks to the justices of which Home Office Circular No. 301,'145/10, dated 11th May, 1916, was sent; what was the number of children's probation officers, and probation officers acting as children's probation officers, regularly appointed and engaged as such, at the Courts of each of these seventeen towns on 31st December, 1913, and 31st December, 1916, respectively; and what was the number of offenders, juvenile, juvenile-adult, or adult, under the supervision of each officer on each of these dates?


I will see whether it is possible to collect this information without putting an undue burden on the officers concerned.
