asked the Secretary of State for Scotland whether, in the light of the case of Sergeant William Jamieson of Bo'ness, he will enter into discussions with the Scottish Police Federation with a view to allowing it to continue to help its members who have been convicted in a civil court.

Friend has raised will be looked at in that context.
