HC Deb 14 April 1976 vol 909 c621W
Mr. Pavitt

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many coloured persons have been employed by the probation service in the last three years; and if he will conduct a special recruitment campaign to attract this section of the population.

Dr. Summerskill

Precise figures are not readily available. The numbers of coloured probation officers, however, are not large and we will consider the possibility canvassed in the latter half of the Question.
