Police: Pensions

Volume 696: debated on Wednesday 21 November 2007

asked Her Majesty's Government:

What action they propose to take to ensure that the new police pension scheme does not adversely affect the ability of British Transport Police (BTP) to recruit high-quality staff, or limit opportunities for BTP staff to transfer to other police services. [HL250]

We are committed to an effective British Transport Police and recognise that quality officers are vital.

We are working with colleagues to determine what, if any, changes to the current interchange arrangements between the BTP and Home Department forces may be needed. This work is at an early stage.
