Great news for my mates the Revenue Constables in HMRC

The Government has backed down from plans to privatise the service.

I am so pleased, I have always been a big fan of this service, these crown appointed constables guard our Customs buildings and the idea of their vital and sometimes very secretive work going to a load of poorly trained private security firms filled me with horror.

I did write to Stephen Timms the Minister and kept the links going with PCS members in Queens Dock, they have clearly done a fantastic job. Well done everyone! I am so glad he was ready to listen. And especially a big cheer for the lads at QD. You do a fine job and it is great that you will keep such a high quality service going.
