§ Mr. Elystan Morgan
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what is the number of probation officers in post in Wales at the moment; and what is his estimate of the number required in the Principality by the end of 1975.
§ Mr. Carlisle
The total current strength in Wales, including Monmouthshire, is 168, including 1 temporary and 22 part-time officers. Separate estimates have not been made of the numbers of probation officers likely to be required by the end of 1975 in particular areas.
