To ask the Scottish Government, further to the answer to question S5W-17474 by Humza Yousaf on 25 July 2018, whether it has received any legal advice that states that, under no circumstances, any British Transport Police officer in Scotland would be in a redundancy situation following the merger with Police Scotland and, if so, whether it will provide that advice.
Answered by: Humza Yousaf 29 August 2018
We have repeatedly guaranteed there would be no redundancies from the BTP transfer to Police Scotland. All officers and staff who transfer will do so in accordance with the Cabinet Office Statement of Practice which applies the principles of TUPE Regulations 2006.
