Specialised railway policing put at risk by Scottish Government06 September, 2016

Despite numerous attempts to solve the impasse on inter Force transfers for 30 year pension scheme members we are no further forward.
Due to the intransigence of the Home Office there is no realistic solution to this problem. After the forthcoming General Election we will resume lobbying with the new administration to try and resolve this issue.
Prospective transferees are advised to be mindful of the current situation. If this issue is ever resolved then it is extremely doubtful that there will be any backdate element to any agreement.
Secondment options have been explored but we believe these to be unworkable and would not resolve the pensions issue.
