S5W-19173: Liam Kerr (North East Scotland)

Scottish Conservative and Unionist Party

Date lodged: 3 October 2018

To ask the Scottish Government, further to the answer to question S5W-17470 by Humza Yousaf on 25 July 2018, by what date the findings of the  independent deliverability assessment will be published.

Answered by: Humza Yousaf 19 October 2018

The purpose of the replanning exercise on BTP integration was to identify when a fully integrated high quality service could be delivered. Once the replanning exercise was completed a Gateway Review was to have taken place to test the deliverability of the project.

The Scottish Government announced its decision in August to re-examine all options for the devolution of railway policing in Scotland. Therefore, a Gateway Review will not be conducted at this time.
