Salmond Lords It
ALEX Salmond was criticised by environmental campaigners yesterday for using his ministerial car to travel a couple of hundred yards to dinner, and back again – twice.
The First Minister summoned his ministerial car to take him from his official residence of Bute House in Edinburgh's Charlotte Square to two dinner engagements on George Street.
But instead of signing his car off for the night, the First Minister kept it on call so he could return the short distance back to his official residence after his meals were over.
