Voluntary

I am a member of the National Farmers Union Scotland.

On 5 February 2022 I attended the Scotland v England rugby match at Murrayfield as a guest of BT Scotland. In addition to the ticket for the match, the hospitality included food and drink. I understand that the cost of this hospitality was approximately £500. I believe that the interest does not meet the prejudice test. [Registered 18 February 2022]
