Explanatory Note

(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 forty-two to twenty-one the number of justices appointed to the Greater Manchester Probation Committee. Nine of the twelve petty sessions areas which comprise the combined probation area of Greater Manchester will appoint fewer justices, while representation for the petty sessions areas of Bury, City of Salford and Tameside is unchanged. The Order further provides that the reduction in membership is to be achieved by agreement or, in default of agreement, by lot.
