§ 78. Mr. G. Thomas
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what plans he has for alternative employment for people serving as welfare officers; and whether he will announce, at an early date, his intentions with regard to these public servants.
§ Mr. R. A. Butler
As I told the House on the Second Reading of the Criminal Justice Bill, I am asking the Advisory Council on the Treatment of Offenders to review the arrangements for the aftercare of those released from training. For the present, therefore, it would not be appropriate for me to make any statement about the future of the Welfare Officer Service.
