Overseas visits

From 12 August to 17 August 2018 I participated in a visit, by the cross party group on Building Bridges with Israel, to Israel and the Palestinian Territories. During the course of the visit the CPG travelled extensively across Israel and in addition visited the occupied Palestinian Territories. I met with many organisations and individuals to hear and discuss issues of concern and areas for possible future engagement. The costs of my visit were met by the embassy of Israel in the United Kingdom (MFA) (Of 2 Palace Green, Kensington, London W8 4QB) and in respect of my travel, accommodation and hospitality are estimated to be of the value of £2,200.
