On 24 August I attended the Edinburgh International book Festival with 2 guests; hospitality included buffet breakfast and buffet lunch plus tickets for 2 book reading events. I estimate the value to be in the region on £100. I was invited by Scottish Power. I attended in my capacity as an MSP.

On 6 Feb 2016 I attended and participated in a conference called Your Future/Your Europe organised by European Study Tours (of 4 Post Office Walk, Fore Street, Hertford, SG14 1 DL). The audience was 16-18 year old school pupils from across the UK. The event was held in Paris. The organisers arranged accommodation and flights for me and one other person. The total costs for the visit were £657.29. I do not consider that this visit meets the prejudice test.

I am a board member of Commonweal, a campaigning think tank for social and economic justice, I will not be remunerated for this position. [Registered 2 May 2019]

On 19 August 2013 I attended the Edinburgh Military tattoo with a guest at the invitation of the Scottish Cadet Tri-Service Forum. My guest and I had a buffet supper plus refreshments in the officer mess and then watched the tattoo in the royal box. The seating was donated by Major General Eales, General Commanding Officer for Scotland to the Cadet Forum. The market value would be in the region of £150-200 per person. I attended in my capacity as Minister for Youth Employment. I do not consider that this visit meets the prejudice test.
