Unison's Scottish secretary, Matt Smith, has strongly criticised Labour party proposals to give power to the Accounts Commission to intervene directly if it believed service standards are not being achieved, The Herald reports (p5).

Mr Smith also demanded that if Labour is elected it brings a complete end to compulsory competitive tendering.

He told delegates at a conference organised by the Scottish Local Government Information Unit that the ending of CCT should not have to wait for a Scottish parliament, reports The Herald.
