HL Deb 26 June 2000 vol 614 c59WA
Lord Windlesham

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Whether they are planning to merge the offices of HM Chief Inspector of Prisons and HM Chief Inspector of Probation; and, if so, what justification there is for making such a change. [HL2922]

Lord Bassam of Brighton

I refer the noble Lord to the reply I gave to the noble Lord, Lord Hurd of Westwell, on 12 June (Official Report, cols. 1368–70).
