Justice Sub-Committee on Policing 21 August 2014 : Thursday, August 21, 2014
Kevin Stewart (Aberdeen Central) (SNP) First, I want to thank you for the two separate inquiries that you intend to carry out to address the public’s concerns. Mr Whyte said that the two reviews are innovative and I am glad to hear that that is the case. In some regards, the approach is much different from what went on before when we had...

Justice Sub-Committee on Policing 21 August 2014 : Thursday, August 21, 2014
Kevin Stewart Mr Emery, do you want to comment on that?



Justice Sub-Committee on Policing 21 August 2014 : Thursday, August 21, 2014
Kevin Stewart Will you also consider the standing authorities that were in place in Strathclyde and Tayside previously—there is a debate about Northern Constabulary—to determine how those decisions were taken and what the checks and balances were at that point?



Justice Sub-Committee on Policing 21 August 2014 : Thursday, August 21, 2014
Kevin Stewart Does the SPA intend to go back to previous decisions?



Justice Sub-Committee on Policing 21 August 2014 : Thursday, August 21, 2014
Kevin Stewart I am grateful for that because one of the other myths that is growing is that there is a lack of scrutiny. Having served on a police board for 13 years myself, I think that the scrutiny set-up now is much greater than it was then, so I am glad that you intend to consider that too.

Justice Sub-Committee on Policing 21 August 2014 : Thursday, August 21, 2014
Kevin Stewart Mr Penman has seen me challenging chief constables before, but it is absolutely right that we ensure that there is no political interference in certain matters.

On communication with you, Mr Emery, and the knowledge exchange with the SPA, do SPA members have security clearance to get cert...

Justice Sub-Committee on Policing 21 August 2014 : Thursday, August 21, 2014
Kevin Stewart I do not think that we should have that debate, to be honest.

Is it just you, Mr Emery, or is it all members of the board?



Justice Sub-Committee on Policing 21 August 2014 : Thursday, August 21, 2014
Kevin Stewart Thank you. That has been extremely useful.



Justice Sub-Committee on Policing 21 August 2014 : Thursday, August 21, 2014
Kevin Stewart My question is in a similar vein. I have a quote here, which states:

“I think that my officers have the right to be protected and also have a duty to protect the public.”

That was Graeme Pearson some years ago, saying that he wanted his officers to carry firearms.

Wi...

Justice Sub-Committee on Policing 21 August 2014 : Thursday, August 21, 2014
Kevin Stewart I want the review to look at incidents such as the one that recently took place in Edinburgh to consider how any changes to the rulings would affect similar circumstances.
