From January 2016 until the dissolution of Parliament on 23 March 2016 I was in receipt of the services of an intern who was working in my office for 2 days a week. The intern scheme is Scottish Government funded but administered through Inclusion Scotland (a consortium of organisations of disabled people and disabled individuals of 2nd Floor, Hayweight House, 23 Lauriston Street, Edinburgh, EH3 9DQ). The value of this support was £1876.88.

I am in receipt of the services of an intern, who will be working in my office from 26 September 2017 to 26 July 2018. The post is unpaid, but the intern receives a bursary of £7,700 as a member of the educational Leadership Programme of the Christian charity CARE (Christian Action Research and Education), of 53 Romney Street, London, SW1P 3RF. The value of the material support provided to me by CARE is £7,700. [Registered 26 September 2017]

I am the Vice Chair of Friends of the Far North Line. This is an honorary position for which I receive no remuneration.

From 6 to 12 October 2015 I visited Taiwan as a guest of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Republic of China. The trip was arranged by the Director General, Taipei Representative Office (Edinburgh office) in the UK, Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Republic of China Department (of 1 Melville Street, Edinburgh, EH3 7PE). I met a number of Government departments, as well as trade and cultural organisations. The cost of the flight was £3065, and the cost of the hotel and ancillary expenses was £818.50. These costs were met by the Taiwanese Government. I do not consider that this meets the prejudice test but wish it to be registered in the voluntary section of my register.

I am a member of Unison.

I am a member of the Co-Operative Party.

I am a member of the Co-Operative Party MSP Group.
