Po­lice VAT query

The Scotsman - - Perspective / Letters To The Editor -

I have al­ways been puz­zled that, for VAT pur­poses, Po­lice Scot­land is re­garded as a ‘na­tional’ force when no one – not the UK, EU, UN et al re­gards Scot­land as a sep­a­rate na­tion, out­with some sports com­pe­ti­tions.

I would sug­gest that the amal­ga­ma­tion of forces in the north­ern­most part of the UK is no dif­fer­ent in kind from sim­i­lar amal­ga­ma­tions in ar­eas of Eng­land. In­deed, con­sid­er­ing its size and reach there might be bet­ter grounds for re­gard­ing the Lon­don Met as a na­tional force.
