Dumfries and Galloway’s MP claims the BBC may be “pandering to a separatist agenda”.
Alister Jack was upset with the songs performed at the Proms in the Park concert in Glasgow, held to mark the Last Night of the Proms in the Royal Albert Hall.
Sections of the London event were broadcast on a big screen to the Glasgow audience with breaks at other stages so that concert goers could enjoy live musical performances.
But theTory MP was furious this meant people at the live event could not join in with songs he classes as the“staple diet” ofThe Proms.
He has now expressed his anger by writing to the BBC’s director general Lord Hall.
He wrote:“Only the Proms in the Park attendees in England and Northern Ireland were able to enjoy and sing along to Rule Britannia!, Land of Hope and Glory and Jerusalem.
“These great songs are part of the staple diet of The Proms and it is ridiculous that the BBC chose to deny the Scottish Proms fans on Glasgow Green the rousing conclusion they have come to expect.
“The BBC give the impression that they are pandering to a separatist agenda.”
Mr Jack has been selected to join the treasurer select committee in the House of Commons, which is chaired by former education secretary Nicky Morgan.
The committee examines the expenditure, administration and policy of organisations such as HMTreasury, HM Revenue and Customs and the Bank of England.
