Walter James Wolffe and private consultations with SNP.

We're waiting for Donald Scott to read a recent response and update the status.

Dear Scottish Government,

Walter James Wolffe QC is a senior Scottish lawyer who has served as Lord Advocate since 1st June 2016. He was appointed by the current First Minister.

Since his appointment, has Lord Wolffe been consulted by the SNP in a separate capacity other than as Lord Advocate to the Scottish government?

If this was indeed the case, please provide full and complete records on when and on what basis these consultations took place.

Yours faithfully,

Donald Scott

Dear Scottish Government,

Thank you for your reply that confirms that Lord Wolffe, QC has not provided legal advice to the SNP.

You state. 'The answer to your question is that since his appointment in June 2016, the Lord
Advocate has not been consulted by the SNP'.

Does this mean that Lord Wolffe, QC has not been consulted on any aspect of recent case of sexual harassment by Mark McDonald, MSP who was a cabinet member within the Scottish Government as well as a member of the SNP?

Yours faithfully,

Donald Scott
