Commenting as Sir Gus O'Donnell rules on the impartiality of the Scottish Permanent Secretary, Sir Peter Housden, Scottish Liberal Democrat leader Willie Rennie MSP said:

"For all three party leaders to come together shows that we all have little confidence in the impartiality of the Scottish Permanent Secretary.

"Sir Peter has to prove to all politicians that he is independent of the ruling party, as governments often change and he has to have the ability to work within any political persuasion.

"So far Sir Peter has shattered the confidence of all opposition parties.

"He has got a lot of work to do to put that right."
