Explanatory Note

(This note is not part of the Order)
This Order amends the Combined Probation Areas Order 1986 (1986/1713) to provide for the reorganisation of the eight petty sessions areas within the Hertfordshire Probation Area into three groups of petty sessions areas. Each group is to appoint fewer members to the Hertfordshire Probation Committee than were formerly appointed by the petty sessions areas comprising the group. The total number of justices appointed to the Committee is reduced from twenty-two to nine.
