Remuneration and related undertaking:
No registrable interests

Gifts:
I received a donation of £500 towards my election expenses for the 2011 Scottish Parliamentary election from the Fire Brigades Union Scotland. This interest, registered on a voluntary basis in the previous session of the Parliament, is now included in the gifts category as a result of the change in the threshold value for registration of gifts.

Overseas visits:
From 19 July to 6 August 2010 I participated in the International Visitors' Leadership Program in the United States, a three week study programme principally examining US policy on climate change. The costs of meals, travel and accommodation within the US, and occasional expenses, were met by the US Department of State Cultural Affairs Division (of 2201 C Street NW, Washington, DC 20520) to a total of $8,100 which, on 19 July 2010, was equivalent to £5,316. The costs of travel to and from the US were met by me.
