Constabulary is 'not for sale'

The Home Affiars Minister has defended new legislation which could see police responsibilities contracted to private firms.

Juan Watterson believes the police amendment bill will free up the time of front-line officers, by allowing contractors to perform routine jobs.

He's hit back at criticisms levelled by North Douglas MHK John Houghton who claimed the bill would allow 'core' services to be 'run by privateers'.

Mr Watterson insists the Constabulary is 'not for sale'.
