Our First Minister seems to have a cavalier attitude about spending public money. He pooh-poohed away a question about the £800,000 paid for a piece of land for the Garl project which was then sold back to the original owner for £50,000. This is our money.
I know Mr Salmond had nothing to do with the sale but surely, with the sum involved, some sort of probe needs to be carried out.

Your story on smokers snubbing the smoking ban outside city hospitals doesn't surprise me.
I regularly attend the maternity unit at the Southern General and regularly come across gaggles of smokers puffing away at the main entrance. Usually they stand right beside the huge posters marking the ban and on top of the 'cross hatched' areas with No Smoking painted in huge letters.
It's an absolute joke. I almost dread having to take the baby home once I've given birth. I'm convinced I'll have to take a newborn through a cloud of fag smoke.

In reply to your reader's letter on Saturday, re the waiting time at security Glasgow Airport, I can assure the reader that as a frequent flyer, using the airport two to three times a week, I have never encountered any problems like this.
I find the staff to be most friendly and very efficient, even at peak times, like early morning.
Regarding the escalator being switched off, this, again, has never occurred when I have used the airport.
Big queues are usually caused by the many people who turn up and don't have their boarding card ready, before entering security.
I would suggest your reader turns up earlier to catch there flight. Keep up the good work Glasgow Airport.
