This is the original version (as it was originally enacted).

21Penalties for breach of requirements of probation order

(1)The maximum fine which may be imposed by a magistrates' court under section 6(3) of the Criminal Justice Act 1948, or by the Crown Court under section 54(5) of the Criminal Justice Act 1967, on a probationer who has failed to comply with any requirement of a probation order shall be £50 instead of £20.

(2)A court before which a probationer appears or is brought and which is satisfied that he has failed to comply with any of the requirements of a probation order may, subject to subsection (3) of this section and without prejudice to the continuance of the probation order, make a community service order in respect of the probationer instead of dealing with him as provided in the said section 6(3) or 54(5).

(3)Section 15(2) of this Act and, so far as applicable, the other provisions of this Act relating to community service orders shall have effect in relation to an order under subsection (2) of this section as they have effect in relation to an order in respect of an offender, but as if the power conferred by sections 17 and 18 of this Act to deal with an offender for the offence in respect of which the order was made were a power to deal with the probationer for his failure to comply with the requirements in question.
