To ask the Scottish Government what its position is on the effectiveness of the relationship between the Scottish Police Authority and ministers and officials, and whether it plans to review this relationship.
Answered by: Michael Matheson 26 January 2018
There is regular and constructive dialogue between the Scottish Government and the Scottish Police Authority. The broad framework underpinning that relationship is set out in The Scottish Police Authority Governance and Accountability Framework, copies of which are available in the Scottish Parliament Information Centre, and which is kept under regular review.
