P.2492, became separate department. Mar 1983 - Amalgamation of Attorney-Generals Department, Solicitor Generals - Department, Registrar-General Department, Prisons Department, and Corporate Affairs to form Law Department. In 1946, as a result of a Royal Commissions recommendation in 1943, the Probation and Parole Service of the Gaols Department (TA 32) was transferred to the Attorney-Generals Department. In 1955 it was split into Adult and Juvenile Probation and Parole Services, the latter being transferred to the Social Services Department (TA 144).~
