Alex Salmond council 'ban' motion in Aberdeen set to be abandoned
Moves to ban Alex Salmond and his Scottish ministerial team from Aberdeen council buildings look set to be abandoned.
A motion from the Labour-led administration had been due to be debated by councillors on Wednesday.
The SNP described the move as an "act of madness by an out-of-control administration".
The authority's deputy leader, Marie Boulton, has now said talk of a ban was a "slip of the tongue".
It is understood there will instead be a motion calling for a review of protocols about allowing people into council premises.
