He is alleged to have paid for items for a staff Christmas party – including alcohol – using a procurement card belonging to the Registers of Scotland (RoS), whose Edinburgh HQ is based at Meadowbank House.

It is understood the festive bash was not held within the RoS offices.

A Register of Scotland spokeswoman said: “We can confirm a senior member of staff has been suspended.”
