HC Deb 15 February 1968 vol 758 c394W
36. Mr. Brooks

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he is satisfied that the net increase in the number of probation officers will be sufficient for the effective implementation of the parole policy to be pursued during the next three years; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Taverne:

The present rate of expansion of the service should enable it to meet its new responsibilities in respect of parole.
