SPF Response to Courts Reform (Scotland) Bill
The Scottish Police Federation response to the Courts Reform (Scotland) Bill can be viewed below.
The response makes clear that the SPF has significant concerns surrounding the proposals currently laid out in the Bill. The SPF believes the Bill, in its current form will significantly disadvantage members who contract disease or sustain a work place injury; result in a diminution of health & safety compliance and result in additional unfair costs being borne by both members and the wider SPF.
