Scottish Liberal Democrats

Date lodged: 7 February 2019

To ask the Scottish Government under what protocol might it invite another police force to carry out an investigation into policing in Scotland.

Answered by: Humza Yousaf 1 March 2019

This is an operational matter for the Chief Constable but I will be seeking assurances from the SPA, as the body responsible for the governance of Police Scotland, that it is satisfied that this matter is being investigated appropriately and that Police Scotland has robust management structures and processes in place to prevent this happening in future.
