HC Deb 18 February 1982 vol 18 c190W
26. Mr. Campbell Savours

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he will renew the funding arrangements with the community service programme supervised by the probation service in the Northern region.

Mr. Raison

Community service is one of a range of facilities which the probation service provides. It is for each probation committee to consider, in the light of local needs, how to allocate the additional resources which are being made available for the service as a whole.
