The Police Federation has confirmed that "Plebgate" has played into its decision to review its structure.
I'm told the new chairman, Steve Williams, who begins in a few weeks' time, has been keen to hold this ever since the Andrew Mitchell affair broke back in September.
At that time the MP's local police federations (West Mercia, West Midlands and Warwickshire) called for him to quit as Chief Whip. But the national chairman didn't go that far.
But events over recent days - calling the police reports into question - have persuaded Chair Elect, Steve Williams this review must happen as soon as he's in position.
Britain's most senior police officer has promised a "ruthless" investigation into an alleged conspiracy against Andrew Mitchell.
Andrew Mitchell has written a piece in which he has accused the police of trying to destroy his career in a smear campaign.
Police investigating the row involving Andrew Mitchell have arrested a second man today. See how the "plebgate" events unfolded.
