HC Deb 28 April 1971 vol 816 c134W
Mr. Oswald

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what is the total number of persons in Scotland at present employed as probation officers, and the number of males and females, respectively, in this service.

Mr. Gordon Campbell

As stated in reply to my hon. Friend the Member for Galloway (Mr. Brewis) on 13th January, no social workers have been designated as probation officers in Scotland since local authorities assumed the responsibility for probation in November, 1969 as part of their responsibility for social work.—[Vol. 809, c. 39.]
