Humza Yousaf is set to face MSPs at Holyrood against a backdrop of mounting pressure on the SNP, as an investigation into party finances progresses.
The First Minister will likely be met with a barrage of questions on the police probe into allegations of missing funds by the opposition following the resignation of treasurer Colin Beattie after his arrest.
He joined former chief executive – and husband of ex-FM Nicola Sturgeon – Peter Murrell in being questioned by Police Scotland, while documents and a vehicle have been seized.
And the party faces a race against time to hire a new auditor for its accounts to meet the May 31 deadline, or lose out on £1.2m of public funding.
