Overseas visits

From 9 February to 13 February 2024 I visited California, USA, as part of a cross-party delegation of MSPs, meeting health professionals, family members of individuals who had used the state’s End of Life Options Act, Senators and representatives of organisations who provide information about the provisions of the Act. The costs of the visit, including travel, accommodation and meals amounted to £2,694 and were paid by the permissible donor Dignity in Dying (a not-for-profit organisation that campaigns for a change in the law on assisted dying, of 181 Oxford Street, London, W1D 2JT).

I am an associate member of NASUWT.

Until 8 August 2023 I was registered with the GTC Scotland. [Amended interest 22 August 2023, Ceased interest 22 August 2023]

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 20 February 2022]
