Probation: Foreigners

Volume 474: debated on Wednesday 2 April 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Justice whether there are any restrictions on the ability of probation service staff to recommend supervision of foreign nationals in Wales where interpreters would be required. (197800)

There is no policy restriction on the ability of probation staff to recommend supervision, delivered with the assistance of an interpreter, for foreign national offenders in Wales. As with any other offender, a recommendation would be based on the individual’s risks, particular needs, eligibility and suitability.
