Salmond inquiry: Nicola Sturgeon should resign if she has broken ministerial code, says Keir Starmer


Sir Keir said the issue was not one of individuals but of principles.

“If you’re going to have integrity in the Westminster Parliament or the Scottish Parliament, breaches of the ministerial code in either parliament ought to lead to a resignation,” he said.

Scotland’s first minister is currently awaiting the findings of a report into whether or not she breached the code. Lawyer James Hamilton is looking into whether the SNP lied to the Scottish Parliament over her knowledge of allegations against her predecessor Alex Salmond.
