Scottish Conservative and Unionist Party

Date lodged: 25 October 2018

To ask the Scottish Government what its response is to the reported comment by the general secretary of the Scottish Police Federation that officers are working without breaks and beyond their working hours.

Answered by: Humza Yousaf 13 November 2018
