HC Deb 30 June 1971 vol 820 cc145-6W
Mr. Clinton Davis

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department in what magistrates' courts in England and Wales pre-trial social inquiry reports have been curtailed due to the unsettled pay claim of probation officers.

Mr. Carlisle

I am not aware of any magistrates' courts in which reports are not now being provided for this reason. I understand that there was recently a temporary cessation at certain courts in Hertfordshire.
