Jackie Baillie (born January 15, 1964, Hong Kong) is a Labour Member of the Scottish Parliament for the Dumbarton constituency. Schooled in the English Lake District, she studied at Cumbernauld College, Strathclyde University and the University of Glasgow.

She was first elected at the inaugural election for the Scottish Parliament. She was re-elected in 2003. A member of the Scottish Parliament's "Justice 2 Committee" and "Public Petitions Committee", she was previously a member of the Scottish Executive, serving as Minister for Social Justice when Henry McLeish was First Minister.

As a backbench MSP, her call for tolls to be scrapped on the Erskine Bridge (which connects her constituency to Renfrewshire) [http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/scotland/4116631.stm] in 2004, was eventually adopted by the Scottish Executive and the tolls were abolished in March 2006.

Jackie also allows secondary school pupils to join her on a work experience program where they are given an insight into politics.
