(This note is not part of the Order)
This Order amends the Combined Probation Areas Order 1986 (S.I. 1986/1713) so as to reduce from thirty-five to eighteen the number of justices appointed to the Northumbria Probation Committee. Each petty sessions area or group of areas will now appoint two justices to the Committee.
