The report also summarizes the arrangements for probation that were in place during the first year (2012-13) of the Comptroller and Auditor General’s audit.

This landscape review is intended to inform the Public Accounts Committee about developments and advance its understanding of them. It is not an evaluation of the Government’s progress in implementing its Transforming Rehabilitation policy.
