Un­work­able waste of po­lice merger

- Scottish National Party

SIR, –It was re­ported that it would cost around £500,000 per of­fi­cer if the merger be­tween the Bri­tish Trans­port Po­lice (BTP) and Po­lice Scot­land were to go ahead.

The SNP Gov­ern­ment is good at squan­der­ing money and think­ing through ill-got­ten plans which are un­work­able.

Maybe now the SNP will lis­ten to the BTP be­fore go­ing ahead with any kind of merger.

If you ask me, I think that this merger is both un­work­able and a waste of tax­pay­ers’ money.
