CA is being investigated over its Facebook data collection methods during the Brexit vote and the 2016 US election, with the SNP putting pressure on other political parties to declare any links to the company.

But SNP MP Brendan O'Hara was left visibly shocked when he was told by former CA director Brittany Kaiser in a Commons committee that the company had held meetings with the party in London and Edinburgh.

First Minister Nicola Sturgeon later told Holyrood that one meeting was held in February 2016 - three months before the last Scottish Parliament election - but that no work was done by CA and no money was paid to the company.
