George Square prof in Holyrood dustup
|Prof Drew Scott|
An economist, Professor Scott was called to a Holyrood committee examining the Scotland Bill, because of some of his research was deemed relevant to devolution of powers. His examination was, ahem, rigorous from MSPs Wendy Alexander and David McLetchie as they probed the oft quoted research.
Now Professor Scott and a colleague have complained to the Presiding Officer about their treatment.
In another twist Alex Salmond is accused of doctoring quotes of the research.
