Can I ask why your authority has not challenged the policy of the BTP in Scotland to have officers conducting solo patrols, as this mean that they are in fact impotent being that Scottish Law has its basis in corroboration (i.e. two or more officers backing up each others evidence).

I have just read the minutes of the authorities meeting on the 31st of January. I note that no decision had been made concerning continued Government funding for the National metal theft task force. Has a decision now been made and if so can you please advise if it was positive and for how much. Last year the funding was for £5 million.

I would like to know how much TFL paid the BTPA in the year 2012.

I would also like to know what they were buying for their money. What are the terms of their Police Authority Agreement? What level of service can they expect from their investment, and how was this actually manifested in 2012 (how many times did TFL use their police force? How many call outs, etc?)

I’ve cc’d in the British Transport Police, in case some of the information about their actual operational deployment is held by them.

Further to that, do you have information how much is provided by Network Rail, by ScotRail and by others?
