Gifts

From January 2016 until the dissolution of Parliament on 23 March 2016 I was in receipt of the services of an intern who was working in my office for 2 days a week. The intern scheme is Scottish Government funded but administered through Inclusion Scotland (a consortium of organisations of disabled people and disabled individuals of 2nd Floor, Hayweight House, 23 Lauriston Street, Edinburgh, EH3 9DQ). The value of this support was £1876.88.

Overseas visits

On 14 to 17 September 2015, I visited Bosnia as part of a delegation organised by the charitable initiative Remembering Srebrenicia, which is a project of the charity Ummah Help (of Newland House, 2nd Floor, 137-139 Hagley Road, Birmingham, B16 8UA). The visit was part of the ‘Lessons from Srebrenica’ educational visits programme. The costs of the visit were met by Remembering Srebrenicia and amounted to £428 for flights and £186.41 for other costs including accommodation, food and transport during the visit, with a total cost of £614.41.

Controlled transactions

Heritable property

I own a house in the Dundee City Council area with a market value of between £250,001 and £300,000. I acquired this property in November 2015 and until 22 January 2016 used this property as a residential home. I receive a gross rental income from this property of between £5,001 and £10,000 a year.

Interest in shares
