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.
