Sturgeon will consider 'appropriate action' over Natalie McGarry

Nicola Sturgeon has said she will consider "action that is appropriate but also proportionate and fair" over allegations of an SNP MP's involvement in apparent discrepancies in an independence campaign fund.

The Women for Independence group raised concerns over the handling of money.

Natalie McGarry, who was elected as MP for Glasgow East in May's general election, was one of the founding members of the organisation.

Speaking to BBC Scotland's political editor Brian Taylor, the first minister said that Ms McGarry denies any wrongdoing but that she is awaiting more detail: "I'm interested in the substance of the allegations that have been made and making sure that, as leader of the SNP, I take action that is appropriate but also proportionate and fair."
