Transport Act 1968

Status:

This is the original version (as it was originally enacted).

5(1)This paragraph shall apply to the Freight Corporation and to the Scottish Group.

(2)The Railways Board may make an agreement with either of the authorities to whom this paragraph applies for making available to that authority or to any wholly-owned subsidiary of that authority for such period, to such extent and on such terms as may be specified in the agreement, the services of the British Transport Police Force, that is to say, the force organised under the scheme set out in the Schedule to the British Transport Police Force Scheme 1963 (Approval) Order 1964 made under section 69 of the Act of 1962.

(3)Where such an agreement has been made members of the said Police Force may act, in accordance with the terms of the agreement, as constables in, on and in the vicinity of any premises of the authority or subsidiary in question notwithstanding the provisions of section 53(1) of the British Transport Commission Act 1949 (which restricts them to so acting in, on and in the vicinity of premises belonging to, leased to or worked by one of the Boards).

(4)The Minister, after consultation with the Boards and either or both of the authorities to whom this paragraph applies, may by order make such adaptations in the said scheme and in sections 69 to 71 of the Act of 1962 as appear to him expedient to enable that scheme and those sections to have effect as respects any period after the making of the order as if that authority or, as the case may be, each of those authorities were one of the Boards.
