  1. Jackie Baillie: 'On who's authority was contact initiated with Salmond chief of staff?'

    Jackie Baillie

    Jackie Bailey is up next for Scottish Labour.

    She says at the heart of the committee set up to investigate the handling of harassment complaints are two women who have been "failed by the government" and says the committee's role is to understand what went wrong so that women cannot be let down again.

    She says it is legitimate to explore issues in the ministerial code investigation.

    She brings up meetings held with Alex Salmond's former chief of staff as they were a "precursor" to discussions between Mr Salmond and Nicola Sturgeon.

    She says the identity of one of the civil service complainants was revealed to the former chief of staff and conveyed to Mr Salmond and says it was an "extraordinary breach of confidentiality".

    She asks on who's authority was contact initiated with Mr Salmond's former chief of staff and on who's authority was the name of a complainer revealed?

    She says the action was not about protecting the interests of the women involved and asks if the first minister authorised the contact and if not, who did?
