HC Deb 10 April 1975 vol 889 cc438-9W
29. Mr. Grieve

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department when he expects to be able to provide facilities in the West Midlands for the enforcement of orders by the courts for community services under the Criminal Justice Act 1972.

Dr. Summerskill

It is for each probation and after-care committee to decide, in the light of available resources and subject to the approval of the Secretary of State, when to introduce arrangements for community service. I understand that the West Midlands Probation and After-Care Committee does not yet feel able to propose a date for the introduction of these arrangements in its area.
