Statement in relation to the devolvement of the functions of the BTP in Scotland.



Following on from the Scottish Justice Secretary's public comments on the future of the BTP in Scotland, the priority of our Members remains the continued safety and security of people who use and work on the railways in Scotland.

Our main role as a Police Federation is to ensure that our members' welfare, wellbeing and conditions of service are safeguarded.

We have been in dialogue with interested parties and these discussions will continue.

George Lewis

Chairman
