Overseas visits

From 17-23 December 2015 I visited Tehran, Iran, as part of a trade delegation and to hold discussions. The cost of the flights (£653.72) were met by the Scottish National Party (of 3 Jackson’s Entry, Edinburgh EH3 8PJ) and the cost of the accommodation and meals (£700) were met by the Iranian Parliament (of Tehran, Iran).

From 27 to 29 November 2011 I visited Brussels to engage with EU institutions as part of a delegation from the European and External Relations Committee. The cost of the visit, £889, was met by the European Commission (of the Berlaymont Building, 200 Rue de la Loi, 1049 Brussels, Belgium).

Voluntary

From 27 to 30 August 2012 I attended an international conference on nuclear disarmament (attended by invited parliamentarians from over 40 countries) at the Palace of Independence in Astana, Kazakhstan. The cost of the visit, £2,593, was met by the Mazhilis (Assembly) of Kazakhstan. I do not believe that this interest meets the prejudice test.

I am Co-President of the Global Council of PNND (Parliamentarians for Nuclear Non-proliferation and Disarmament).

I attended three rugby football matches as a guest of the Scottish Rugby Union. The matches were: Glasgow Warriors vs. Connaught on 21 September 2012, Scotland vs. South Africa on 17 November 2012 and Scotland vs. Italy on 9 February 2013. The total cost of the invited guest packages was £290 which is below the threshold for registration.

I am member of SCND (Scottish Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament).

I am a Global Council Member of Abolition 2000.
