Section 29: Terms of employment

78.Section 29 is designed to ensure that the Authority’s employment practices fall within the criteria set by the Secretary of State. The BTP’s officers will hold the office of constable and also be employees of the Authority. In transferring their employment from the SRA to the Authority their existing terms and conditions of employment will be protected. Thus far the Secretary of State has retained an overarching control on BTP constables’ and civilians' pay through the SRA’s financial framework. This section will enable the Secretary of State to ensure that the Authority maintains pay parity for BTP constables and civilians with their Home Office colleagues.
