Commenting on the publication of letters between executives at News International and the First Minister, Scottish Liberal Democrat leader Willie Rennie MSP said:

"These letters show that the SNP have been extremely willing to cosy up to executives at News International. The blatant sycophantic behaviour laid out for all to see should make the First Minister squirm.

"The crucial letter following the meeting in January does not contain one mention of Alex Salmond quizzing James Murdoch about phone hacking. Why did he not ask these critical questions and just how low did he have to stoop to secure News International's support?"
