§ 22. Mr. Teddy Taylor
To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will make a statement on the procedures for consultation and co-operation between police forces and transport police.
§ Mr. Douglas Hogg
I understand that there is extensive consultation and co-operation between police forces and the British Transport police. Senior officers of all forces are in regular contact discussing issues of mutual interest and planning joint operations. Assistance is also provided regularly to the British Transport police around the country by regular police forces and the British Transport police reciprocates.
