Overseas visits

From 7 to 14 April 2008 I visited Zambia to visit Oxfam’s field projects. I estimate the costs of the trip to be £2,000 (including travel, accommodation, food and vaccines). The costs of the trip were met by Oxfam in Scotland, a non-governmental organisation of 207 Bath Street, Glasgow, G2 4HZ.

From 1 to 7 August 2008 I visited Zambia to provide best practice advice on political engagement to improve democracy and participation. I estimate the costs of the trip to be between £2,500 and £3,000 (including travel, insurance, accommodation and subsistence). The costs of the trip were met by Westminster Foundation for Democracy, an independent public body sponsored by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office working towards strengthening institutions of democracy (of 4/5 Norman Shaw North, Victoria Embankment, London SW1A 2JF).

Voluntary

Before the election I was asked if I would be interested in joining St Johnstone FC’s Community Trust as a board member. I agreed and then signed to do so in early May. After my appointment as Minister for Public Health and Sport I indicated that I would need to withdraw my membership and this is currently being finalised. There was no remuneration associated with this post, I have received no remuneration and it would be carried out entirely in my own spare time.
