From 9 to 15 February 2018 I was part of a Tearfund humanitarian delegation travelling to Nepal to learn how projects in relation to child trafficking, earthquake relief and flood prevention are transforming lives. The costs of the visit amounted to £1,300 and were met by Tearfund Scotland (a Christian charity of 29 Canal St, Glasgow G4 0AD). I do not consider that this visit meets the prejudice test.

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). I do not consider that this visit meets the prejudice test.
