Salmond may pull out of Holyrood committee hearing after evidence removed


Alex Salmond may not now appear before a Holyrood committee tomorrow after some of his evidence in a dispute with the devolved administration and the SNP was redacted from the parliament’s website, his lawyer has said.

David McKie said he was “urgently” seeking “the legal basis for the proposed redactions”. Some 474 words appear to have been removed from Mr Salmond’s evidence.

Mr McKie said he needed clarification in order to “properly advise our client and make further representations”.

He added: “These could have a material bearing on whether he is able to attend tomorrow.”
