SNP Candidate Frank Ross fails to register his hotel

SNP candidate and depute leader of Edinburgh City Council, Frank Ross, has failed to register his ownership of a hotel with officials. It is believed that Frank Ross owns a significant share of the Silverfjord Hotel in Kingussie.

Frank Ross is standing for re-election in Corstorphine-Murrayfield.

The Councillors’ Code of Conduct states the business should have been declared under income, property and shareholdings on Cllr Ross’ council register. It is understood Frank Ross has been reported to the Standards Commission for Scotland.

He initially told the Herald he couldn't remember if he had informed officials that he bought the property last October.

Labour MP Ian Murray has reportedly said: "Frank Ross is turning into a complete liability for the SNP.

"The SNP needs to deal with this fast, and Nicola Sturgeon needs to outline what steps she is going to take to discipline Frank Ross, or if he can stay as the SNP's candidate to lead Edinburgh City Council."
