§ Mr. Clinton Davis
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department in 146W 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.
