HC Deb 05 February 1987 vol 109 c783W
56. Mr. Alex Carlile

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he has any proposals for increasing funding for the probation service over the next five years; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Mellor

The Government's plan for expenditure on the probation service are set out in their 1987 public expenditure White Paper (Cmnd. 56-II), published in January. The White Paper covers the years up to and including 1989–90, beyond which there are as yet no plans.
