None of that was an answer to the question that I asked.

The accounts of Scotland's health boards show that in 2007, the number of non-clinical staff who earned more than £50,000 a year was 617. Today, it is 1,790. Alex Salmond's army of NHS managers who earn more than £50,000 a year now numbers 1,790. The total pay bill then was £34 million. Now, it is £104 million. Pay is three times higher under the SNP and the number of health board managers has trebled. How has all that happened?
