Remuneration and related undertaking:
I was a partner of Linklaters, Singapore (of 1 George St, Singapore 049145), a law firm, until April 2016. I expect to receive remuneration in the form of income/profit share for this former position in the current financial year and will add this to my register when it becomes registrable. I ceased to be a partner of Linklaters, Singapore as of 30 April 2016 and I do not plan to undertake this role or any other outside role while serving as an MSP.

On Saturday 11 November 2017 I attended a rugby match at BT Murrayfield, as a guest of BT Group Plc (a telecommunications company of BT Centre, 81 Newgate Street, London, EC1A 7AJ). The value of the gift amounted to £375 for both the ticket and hospitality. [Registered 20 December 2017]

Overseas visits:
From 31 July to 5 August 2016 I was part of a fact finding political delegation to Israel and the West Bank for Scottish Conservative MSPs. The costs of the visit amounted to £2,000 and were met by Conservative Friends of Israel (of CFI Ltd, PO Box 72288, London, SW1P 9LB) [Registered 11 August 2016]

Controlled transactions:
No registrable interest

Heritable property:
I owned a flat in Edinburgh with a market value of between £500,001 and £600,000. The property yielded a gross annual income of between £5,001 and £10,000. I no longer own the property.

I own a cottage in South Lanarkshire with a market value of between £50,001 and £100,000. The property does not yield any rental income and is currently on the market.

Interest in shares:
I own ordinary shares in Font Energy, an energy metering company for the energy sector. The shares represent approximately 4% of the total issued share capital with an estimated market value of £100,000. This company is based in England and has no business interests in Scotland, nor does it have any intention of operating within Scotland.

I have individual shareholdings in various companies which together are worth under £20,000.

I am a member of the Law society of England and Wales.
