The Scottish Parliamentary Corporate Body (SPCB) agreed to publish a submission which had previously been censored by the Holyrood inquiry into the Salmond affair.

Mr Salmond made a submission on the ministerial code to the Committee on the Scottish Government Handling of Harassment Complaints.

The submission accuses his successor, Nicola Sturgeon, of misleading parliament.

The committee previously said it would not be published due to legal concerns over the identity of complainers in Mr Salmond’s criminal trial last year, where he was cleared of 13 charges at the High Court in Edinburgh.

But, on Thursday afternoon, the SPCB ruled “on balance it is possible” to publish the submission.

The decision could see the former First Minister give evidence to MSPs as early as next week.
