HC Deb 06 July 1961 vol 643 c143W
60. Mr. Randall

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if his attention has been drawn to the Annual Report for 1960 of the Durham County Combined Area Probation Committee and the current case-loads of the probation officers; and what steps he proposes to achieve the desired number of case-loads per officer.

Mr. R. A. Butler

I have seen this Report. I understand that the Durham Probation Committee, who have the responsibility for appointing sufficient probation officers, keep the staffing position under regular review and have increased the staff by four in the last six months.
