Monday 03 May 1999

SEAN CONNERY'S visit to lend support to the SNP could have proved costly. A thief, posing as his personal assistant, tried to use the actor's credit card number to place telephone orders for a range of goods from a lawnmower to a pounds 150,000 work of art. The thief said he was working for a bogus Connery company called Goldfinger Productions.
ON THE campaign trail in Perth, Scottish Tory Ian Stevenson condemned the Government's beef on the bone ban: "Scottish Conservatives will fight in the new parliament to give the people of Scotland the freedom to make their own choices as to what they buy and eat," he said.
