To ask the Scottish Government, further to the answer to question S5W-17471 by Humza Yousaf on 25 July 2018, whether it will answer the question that was asked and confirm what assessment, if any, it has undertaken on the integration, and whether it will provide such assessment.
Answered by: Humza Yousaf 29 August 2018
The extensive re-planning work which has been underway has brought to light practicalities that were of concern to Police Scotland and in light of their recent advice, and as announced on 27 August, we now looking at further options available. We remain committed to full integration as legislated for in the Railway Policing (Scotland) Act 2017, which we will keep under review in the intervening period.
