Labour Urge Refund Over EU Debacle

The First Minister is facing demands to pay back thousands of pounds of taxpayers' money spent trying to keep the public from knowing about legal advice on Scotland's place in the EU after a vote for independence.

Labour will use debating time today at the Scottish Parliament to call for a #12,000 refund one week after Deputy First Minister Nicola Sturgeon revealed there was no legal advice in the first place.

The Scottish Government went to the Court of Session arguing that the code of conduct for ministers prevents disclosure of advice, including whether advice has been sought.
