Maree's register of interests

MSPs must provide details of their financial interests in the Register of Interests. They make an initial statement on becoming or being returned as an MSP. This is then updated with any changes they provide.

Here is the register for Maree Todd. The date of their initial statement was 06 June 2016.

Remuneration and related undertaking

Until May 2016 I was a pharmacist with NHS Highland (of Pharmacy department, New Craigs Hospital, Leachkin Road, Inverness, IV3 8NP). I was on unpaid leave from February until May 2016. I expect to receive up to £500, for earned pensions contributions and remaining holidays, for 2016. I previously earned £25,000 to £30,000 per annum. I may need to undertake work as a pharmacist in the future to remain registered but this may not involve paid work.

Gifts

On 24 February 2018 myself and a guest attended the Calcutta Cup, Scotland v England rugby match, at Murrayfield as hospitality guests of the SRU (Scottish Rugby Union, BT Murrayfield, Edinburgh, EH12 5PJ). The value of the President’s Suite Hospitality Ticket (including ticket to the match) was £500 per person. The total combined value was therefore £1,000. [Registered 3 April 2018]

On 25 November 2017 myself and a guest attended the Scotland v Australia rugby match at Murrayfield as hospitality guests of the SRU (Scottish Rugby Union, BT Murrayfield, Edinburgh, EH12 5PJ). The value of the President’s Suite Hospitality Ticket (including ticket to the match) was £500 per person. The total combined value was therefore £1000. [Registered 13 December 2017]

On 24 February 2017 myself and a guest attended the Scotland v Wales women and under 20’s matches at Cumbernauld. On 25 February 2017 we attended the Scotland v Wales match at Murrayfield. Both events were as hospitality guests of the SRU (Scottish Rugby Union, BT Murrayfield, Edinburgh, EH12 5PJ). The value of each ticket was £10 and £95 respectively. The total combined value of the tickets was £210. I estimate that the cost of hospitality was £495 per person plus VAT, the total combined estimated value of the hospitality was £990 plus VAT. [Registered 21 March 2017]
