“I’ve repeatedly asked the Secretary of State how many staff have been axed since the probation service has been privatised and have repeatedly been refused an answer.
It’s now being reported that there was a 20% cut in the number of probation staff in the privatised probation companies between 2015 and 2016.
It’s being reported there was a 20% cut. Can the Government confirm this?”
Richard Burgon MP, Shadow Secretary of State for Justice.
