HC Deb 11 May 1971 vol 817 cc94-5W
Mr. Oram

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what further communications he has now received about the inadequacy of the salaries of probation officers and the effect on their recruitment; and what reply he has sent.

Mr. Maudling

I have continued to receive representations on this matter, both through hon. Members and otherwise. Correspondents have been told their letters are receiving attention, and the pay position has been explained to hon. Members.
