Interest in shares:
I own 100% of the issued share capital of Stripe Retail Ltd, a company providing retail consulting and advisory services. These are ordinary shares with a market value of £171,292. The company is a privately owned limited company therefore market value is difficult to determine. The value given is the net asset value based on the latest accounts filed with Companies House.


I own 50% of the issued share capital of Over the Counter Ltd, a retail company. These are ordinary shares with a market value of £37,211. The company is a privately owned limited company therefore market value is difficult to determine. The value given is the net asset value based on the latest accounts filed with Companies House.

Voluntary:
I am currently a non-working director of Stripe Retail Ltd and Over the Counter Ltd but receive no remuneration or benefits in kind from either of these companies. I am, as declared, a shareholder in both these companies and therefore receive dividends from them.


At the point of my return as a member of the Scottish Parliament I was a non-working, unremunerated director of Aspidistra Ltd and Aspidistra Property Ltd. I have since resigned these directorships.


I am a member of USDAW and Community trade unions.
