CENTENARY
COMMITEE
This
committee,
which
has
been
formed
as
a
result
of
representations
made
by
the
Penal
Reform
Committee
of
the
Friends
Society,
is
now
working
as
an
independent
body
for
the
purpose
of
raising
money
to
establish
an
experimental
training
centre
for
neglectful
mothers
with
their
children.
The
chairman
is
Sir
Robert
Mayer
and
the
objective
is
£20,000
to
carry
the
experiment
over
a
period
of
five
years.
The
scheme,
while
not
sponsored
by
the
Friends
Society,
has
their
sympathy
and
interest.
The
National
Association
of
Probation
Officers
is
repre-
sented
on
the
committee
from
a
practical
and
not
a
money-raising
angle.
An
enthusiastic
public
meeting
was
held
in
London
on
October
30th,
as
a
result
of
which
a
sum
of
over
£500
was
raised,
but
large
sums
are
needed
immediately
if
the
scheme
is
to
crystallise
in
the
near
future.

PROBATION
OFFICERS’
SALARIES
It
will
be
remembered
that
on
two
occasions
at
the
beginning
of
the
year
a
Deputation
from
N.A.P.O.
went
to
the
Home
Office
on
the
question
of
salaries.
At
that
time
we
were
promised
by
the
Home
Office
that
the
draft
scheme
would
be
communicated
to
the
Association
when
it
had
been
prepared.
We
are
glad
to
be
able
to
report
now
that,
in
fulfilment
of
this
promise,
we
have
been
given
details
of
a
new
salary
scale
which
will
come
into
force
on
December
lst,
1946.
From
December
lst
the
authority
for
the
payment
of
war
bonus
will
be
withdrawn.
The
new
inclusive
salary
scales
for
full-time
offices
will
be
as
follows :-
Men :
£ 305
at
age
23
rising
by
£ 10
p.a.
for
two
years,
then
by
£15
p.a.
until
age
30.
£400
at
age
30
(or
on
appointment
if
aged
30
or
over),
by
£ 15
p.a.
to
£ 460,
and
by
£ 20
to
£5570.
Women:
£ 290
at
age
23
rising
by
£ 10
for
two
years,
then
by
£ 15
until
age

£ 385
at
30
(or
on
appointment
if
aged
30
or
over),
by
£ 15
p.a.
to
£ 460.
The
difference
of
£ 15
at
every
point
between
the
scales
for
men
and
women
is
based
on
the
variations
introduced
by
the
war
bonus
rates.
