London, 01/04/2014. To mark the birthday of the Lord Chancellor and Secretary of State for Justice, Chris Grayling, NAPO (Formerly the National Association of Probation Officers, is the trade union and professional association that represents probation staff including probation officers and other operational and administrative staff and Children and Family Court Advisory and Support Service staff in the United Kingdom) and Justice Alliance held a demo started from Old Palace Yard and ended outside the Ministry of Justice. From NAPO website: <<The Ministry of Justice is pushing through its Transforming Rehabilitation plans to outsource 70% of the Probation Service's work by the end of 2014. NAPO believes that the true motivation behind this is to drive down costs and an ideological commitment on the part of the government to the private sector being the preferred bidder as opposed to state run services. If these plans proceed it will lead to fragmentation of the service, staff cuts (that is how the government will make its savings and the companies their profit) and will severely compromise public protection>>.<br />
