To ask the Scottish Government what discussions it has had with Audit Scotland regarding any risks associated with the merger of the British Transport Police in Scotland with Police Scotland

The BTP integration is being managed in line with the SPFM guidance on risk, project and programme management. Audit Scotland are not part of this process and have an independent assurance role that is separate from risk management arrangements.
