HC Deb 07 March 1962 vol 655 c68W
56. Mrs. Hart

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland how many probation officers are employed in Scotland; and what is their average case-load.

Mr. Maclay

The number of persons in whole-time service as probation officers in Scotland at 31st December, 1961, was 164, of whom 29 were women. The average case-load of such officers in December, 1960, was 55 for men and 44 for women; I shall write to the hon. Member when the comparable figures for December, 1961, are available.
