Probation: Terrorism

Volume 497: debated on Monday 12 October 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Justice how many probation officers on average have been assigned to the cases of each person convicted of terrorism offences in the UK in each year since 2001. (290104)

The National Offender Management Service does not hold centrally the details on the number of staff allocated by each probation area to individual cases. However, for offenders convicted of terrorism or terrorist-related offences, the Chief Officer or Chief Executive of Probation must ensure that the Offender Manager is suitably experienced and equipped to manage the case.
