Here is the register for Bill Kidd. The date of their initial statement was 25 May 2016.

Remuneration and related undertaking

No registrable interests

Gifts

No registrable interests

Overseas visits

From 17-23 December 2015 I visited Tehran, Iran, as part of a trade delegation and to hold discussions. The cost of the flights (£653.72) were met by the Scottish National Party (of 3 Jackson’s Entry, Edinburgh EH3 8PJ) and the cost of the accommodation and meals (£700) were met by the Iranian Parliament (of Tehran, Iran).

From 27 to 29 November 2011 I visited Brussels to engage with EU institutions as part of a delegation from the European and External Relations Committee. The cost of the visit, £889, was met by the European Commission (of the Berlaymont Building, 200 Rue de la Loi, 1049 Brussels, Belgium).

Controlled transactions

Heritable property

Voluntary

From 27 to 30 August 2012 I attended an international conference on nuclear disarmament (attended by invited parliamentarians from over 40 countries) at the Palace of Independence in Astana, Kazakhstan. The cost of the visit, £2,593, was met by the Mazhilis (Assembly) of Kazakhstan. I do not believe that this interest meets the prejudice test.

I attended three rugby football matches as a guest of the Scottish Rugby Union. The matches were: Glasgow Warriors vs. Connaught on 21 September 2012, Scotland vs. South Africa on 17 November 2012 and Scotland vs. Italy on 9 February 2013. The total cost of the invited guest packages was £290 which is below the threshold for registration.

I am a Global Council Member of Abolition 2000.

I am member of SCND (Scottish Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament).

I am Co-President of the Global Council of PNND (Parliamentarians for Nuclear Non-proliferation and Disarmament).
