Mr Salmond struck a more muted tone at the Inquiry than some may be used to from watching him at First Minister's questions. The key parts of his evidence were:
He revealed there was "no evidence" phone had not been hacked by the News of the World
But he alleged the Observer had gained access to his bank details in 1999, an accusation refuted by the newspaper.
He criticised the Metropolitan police's handling of phone hacking as "remarkable and very unsatisfactory".
He flatly denied leaking the proposed date for the referendum on Scottish independence to the Sun last year.
Mr Salmond revealed he had been prepared to speak to the relevant secretary of state on the BSkyB bid.
