Responding to Fiona Hyslop’s claim that the SNP Government has now received legal advice on a separate Scotland’s membership of the EU, Scottish Labour’s Patricia Ferguson MSP, said:
“Alex Salmond has previously told us that he had legal advice when he didn’t. The only way Scots will believe what we’ve been told is for the legal advice to be published.
“I’m also keen to know when permission was granted by the Lord Advocate for the existence of the legal advice to be publicly acknowledged. The SNP Government needs to come clean and publish the legal advice it claims to have received. Given the track record of the SNP, until they do, we won’t be able to trust a word they say on this matter.”
