Remuneration and Related Undertaking:

On 22 December 2006 I received a metal badge from Scottish Racing, a firm which operates at Ayr, Kelso, Musselburgh, Perth and Hamilton Park racecourses. The badge entitles the bearer to free admittance to any race meeting at the above race courses. I was unable to attend any of the events during 2007. I estimate the value of the badge to be between £501 and £1,000.

Overseas Visits:

I accepted an invitation from Stephen Rodan MHK, the Speaker of the House of Keys, Isle of Man, to attend the Tynwald Ceremony on 5 July 2011 as an official guest. A number of ancillary events were arranged for the official party around the date of the ceremony. Hospitality was organised by the Office of the Clerk of the Tynwald and consisted of 4 nights at the Regency Hotel, Douglas, meals and coach travel to various locations. My husband, Jeff Leaver, who also works for me part time as my researcher, also attended. Our air fares were paid personally and I estimate the value of the hotel room and hospitality for both of us to be around £1000. [Registered 7 July 2011]
