HC Deb 18 June 1973 vol 858 c35W
Mr. Pavitt

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will establish a benevolent fund for probation officers from which they could be compensated when money or personal possessions are stolen from them in the course of their work in their offices.

Mr. Carlisle

I do not think this is called for; ex-gratia payments have been made in some cases.
