(2) how many probation offices are open.

Information on the number of probation offices there were in each year since 1997 is not held or recorded centrally. The information requested could be obtained only at disproportionate cost as it would require approaching 42 probation trusts and areas across England and Wales.

Current central estates records show there are 1,049 occupied probation properties, of which 95 are Approved Premises.
