Remuneration and related undertaking:
Until 29 June 2016, when I resigned, I was a local authority Councillor for North Lanarkshire Council (of Civic Centre, Windmillhill Street, Motherwell, ML1 1AB). I spent in the region of 30 hours per week on this role. I received a salary and use of a mobile phone, iPad and Laptop. I estimate the total combined value of this remuneration was between £15,001 and £20,000 per annum. I received a final payment of salary on 5 July 2016. [Amended interest 05 July 2016]

Until 6 May 2016, I was a full time Social Worker at South Lanarkshire Council (of Almada Street, Hamilton, ML3 0AA). I received an annual salary in the range £30,001 to £35,000. I received a final salary payment on 20 May 2016.

On Monday 31 July 2017 I received a gift in the form of a private outpatient appointment, including electrocardiogram (ECG) and echo Doppler study, as a precautionary step prior to demonstrations of a procedure known as enhanced counterpulsation therapy (ECP). The cost of the appointment and tests was £706, which was met by Renew Health Ltd. (a medical services company of Athlone, Westmeath, Ireland). I accepted the gift because I am interested in the potential therapeutic benefits of ECP for patients with intractable angina. Each patient has to undergo an individualised assessment programme before a decision can be made as to whether or not they are suitable for treatment. Acceptance of the gift allowed me to experience personally the treatment in order to increase my knowledge and understanding. [Registered 22 August 2017]
