Kezia Dugdale is the new Scottish Labour leader

"Kezia Dugdale has been elected the new Scottish Labour leader after defeating Holyrood veteran Ken Macintosh."

"The contest followed the resignation of Jim Murphy in June after the party lost all but one of its 41 seats in May’s general election."

"Dugdale, the favourite, won 72.1% of the vote, and Macintosh won 27.9%. She becomes leader after just four years as an MSP and months after becoming deputy leader in Scotland."

So there will be no opposition to the Named Person policy from the Labour Party, just bickering about the detail.
