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).

From 9 to 13 October 2016, as a member of the Cross Party Group on Taiwan, I visited Taiwan as a guest of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Republic of China (Taiwan). The trip was arranged by the Taipei Representative Office (Edinburgh office) in the UK, Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Republic of China (Taiwan) (of 1 Melville Street, Edinburgh, EH3 7PE). I met a number of Government departments, as well as trade and cultural organisations. The total cost of the flight, hotel and ancillary expenses was £6000.
