Overseas visits

From 10 to 12 September 2011 I visited Barcelona to attend the National Day of Catalonia and give a presentation in the town of Riudecanyes. The costs of flights to and from Barcelona (£216.54) were met by the Provincial Council of Riudecanyes (the local authority of Riudecanyes of Town Hall Carrer Dimecres, 9 43771, Riudecanyes) and accommodation costs (£200) were met by Esquerra Republicana de Catalunya (a political party in Catalonia and currently the opposition in the Catalonian Parliament of National Office of ERC Calàbria, 166 08015, Barcelona).

In February 2008 I visited the United States as part of the US Department of State’s International Visitor Leadership Program. The United States Government met the cost of this visit, which was US $6,710.32 (£3415.55 at February 2008 exchange rates).
