Overseas visits

From 8 to 13 October 2017, 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 £6400. These costs were entirely met by the Taiwanese Government as detailed above. [Registered 31 October 2017]

Heritable property

No registrable interests

Interest in shares

I own 50% of the issued share capital of Over the Counter Ltd, a retail company. These are ordinary shares with a market value of £37,211. The company is a privately owned limited company therefore market value is difficult to determine. The value given is the net asset value based on the latest accounts filed with Companies House.

I own 100% of the issued share capital of Stripe Retail Ltd, a company providing retail consulting and advisory services. These are ordinary shares with a market value of £171,292. The company is a privately owned limited company therefore market value is difficult to determine. The value given is the net asset value based on the latest accounts filed with Companies House.

Voluntary

I am currently a non-working director of Stripe Retail Ltd and Over the Counter Ltd but receive no remuneration or benefits in kind from either of these companies. I am, as declared, a shareholder in both these companies and therefore receive dividends from them.

I am an associate member of the Labour Women’s Network.

I am a member of the Federation of Small Businesses.

At the point of my return as a member of the Scottish Parliament I was a non-working, unremunerated director of Aspidistra Ltd and Aspidistra Property Ltd. I have since resigned these directorships.

I am a member of Amnesty International.

I am a member of USDAW and Community trade unions.

I am a member of Labour movement for Europe.
