This Bill is currently progressing through Parliament and concerns various issues related the British Transport Police. These include the establishment of a Statutory Police Authority, jurisdiction and a link to Police Regulations.
The Bill has raised a number of important issues especially in relation to pensions, jurisdiction and our negotiating structure.
