Alex Salmond may not now seem earlier than 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 web site, his lawyer has mentioned.
David McKie mentioned he was “urgently” searching for “the legal basis for the proposed redactions”. Some 474 phrases seem to have been removed from Mr Salmond’s evidence.
Mr McKie mentioned he want clarification in an effort 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.”
