Overseas visits

From 23 to 27 July 2017 (which included two days’ travel) I visited Columbo, Sri Lanka as part of a cross party delegation aimed at increasing women’s participation in politics in the country. I participated in a series of events and spoke at four separate events. The trip was funded by the Westminster Foundation for Democracy (a democracy-strengthening organisation of Artillery House, 11-19 Artillery Row, London SW1P 1RT). The costs of the trip were: subsistence £36.90, economy class flights £2327.09 and hotel £179.01, a total of £2,453. [Registered 22 August 2017]

From 9 to 13 October 2016, as part of a cross party group, I visited Taiwan as a guest of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Republic of China (Taiwan). The trip was arranged by the Taipei Representative Office (Edinburgh office) in the UK, Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Republic of China (Taiwan) (of 1 Melville Street, Edinburgh, EH3 7PE). I met a number of Government departments, as well as trade and cultural organisations. The total cost of the flight, hotel and ancillary expenses was £6000. These costs were met by the Taiwanese Government. During the trip I was also gifted a limited edition copy of a Taipei sculpture by the artist. I would approximate the value of this gift to be less than £150. [Registered 26 October 2016]
