Ruth Davidson calls on Nicola Sturgeon to ‘consider her position’


Nicola Sturgeon is facing mounting pressure over claims she misled the Scottish Parliament about Alex Salmond, as the leader of the Scottish Conservatives at Holyrood urged her to consider her position.

Earlier Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer said Scotland’s first minister should resign if she is found to have broken the ministerial code.

But Ruth Davidson told the BBC: “There’s clear evidence now that Nicola Sturgeon misled parliament and I think she should consider her own position. ”

The first minister is currently awaiting the findings of a report into whether or not she breached the code, expected to be published next week.

Separately, a report by a Holyrood inquiry, also due next week, is reported to have concluded it is “hard to believe” she was unaware of concerns about her predecessor’s behaviour before November 2017, as she told MSPs.
