Voluntary

I am a member of the GMB Trade Union.

From 20 to 22 August 2016 I was in London for a speaking engagement at a conference on the subject of Yemen. The cost of my travel to and from London was £208 and the cost of my accommodation was approximately £355. These costs were met by members of the Yemeni community. I do not consider that this visit meets the prejudice test.

I stood for election as a member of the Scottish Co-Operative party.
