Commenting as Jeremy Hunt says he will hand over private emails with his special adviser about the BSkyB takeover bid to the Leveson Inquiry, leader of the Scottish Liberal Democrats Willie Rennie said:
“Following the revelations that the SNP government failed to disclose a meeting between the First Minister and Rupert Murdoch in New York in 2008 it is clear we need full transparency.
“Mr Hunt has said he will release his private emails with his special adviser about the discussions that took place with representatives of News Corp.
“If it is good enough for Mr Hunt it should be good enough for Mr Salmond.
“The First Minister should release his private correspondence with his special advisers. The suspicion that Mr Salmond traded government influence for political support will not fade until we see the full picture.”
