HC Deb 21 January 1971 vol 809 c320W
Mrs. Lena Jeger

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what proposals he now has regarding the pay of probation officers; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Maudling

The pay of probation officers is a matter for consideration in the first instance by the Joint Negotiating Committee for the Probation Service. The Committee held a first meeting to review the current position on 15th January. I shall give careful consideration to any recommendations which the Committee may in due course make to me.
