SNP rejects claims

THE SNP has been accused of pandering to the party's leadership rather than trying to hold the government to account.

Opposition parties vented their anger after the SNP blocked a Holyrood committee report criticising police reform.

Two versions of the Public Audit Committ-ee report were publish-ed - one by the SNP majority and another "minority" report with additional criticism of the move to a new national police force.

The SNP said the attack ignores improve-ments and savings.

SNP MSP James Dornan, who sits on the committee, criticised the opposition, saying "This is nothing more than sheer political opportunism from Labour."
