STRICTLY PRIVATE AND CONFIDENTIAL AND SUBJECT TO LEGAL PROFESSIONAL PRIVILEGEand therefore I'm sure readers will understand why it would not be sensible to reproduce it here, not just because we've all been asked not to, but because it might prejudice our legal challenge of TR. And this is the key point. On Saturday at Scarborough the membership extracted a promise from the Napo leadership that a legal challenge to TR would be expedited, but most importantly, if the present 'direction of travel' is found wanting for any reason, further legal opinion will be obtained urgently.
I can reassure Napo members and others with any interest in trying to stop this scandalous and dangerous destruction of the Probation Service, that the content of the e-mail accords completely with what was agreed on Saturday. Any member who feels they may have evidence that would assist the legal challenge are urged to make contact with Yvonne Pattison, National Co-Chair, as soon as possible.
