NICOLA Sturgeon has sparked fresh fury after she vowed to publish stats on the supply of the coronavirus vaccine to Scotland in defiance of Boris Johnson.
The move could be seen as a boost to the EU's jab wars with AstraZeneca as the bloc tries to force the drug giant to hand doses of the jab destined for Britain.
Ms Sturgeon has been under increasing pressure to roll the vaccine out faster in Scotland and she said today she would ignore Downing Street's pleas to keep the number of doses arriving in the country quiet.
This is despite the Government's request when Ms Sturgeon previously tried to release the stats to keep them under wraps to respect "commercial confidentiality".
The Scottish Health Secretary was forced to apologise to Matt Hancock earlier this month after publishing the figures.
Speaking today, Ms Sturgeon told Holyrood: "I've said to my officials actually, regardless of what they say, I think we will just go back to publishing the actual supply figures from next week so we all have transparency around that."
