Register of interests

Patrick's register of interests

MSP's must provide details of their financial interests in the Register of Interests. They make an initial statement on becoming or being returned as an MSP. This is then updated with any changes they provide.

Here is the register for Patrick Harvie. The date of their initial statement was 18 May 2016.

Remuneration and related undertaking

No registrable interests

Gifts

I received a donation of £500 towards my election expenses for the 2011 Scottish Parliamentary election from the Fire Brigades Union Scotland. This interest, registered on a voluntary basis in the previous session of the Parliament, is now included in the gifts category as a result of the change in the threshold value for registration of gifts.

Overseas visits

From 19 July to 6 August 2010 I participated in the International Visitors' Leadership Program in the United States, a three week study programme principally examining US policy on climate change. The costs of meals, travel and accommodation within the US, and occasional expenses, were met by the US Department of State Cultural Affairs Division (of 2201 C Street NW, Washington, DC 20520) to a total of $8,100 which, on 19 July 2010, was equivalent to £5,316. The costs of travel to and from the US were met by me.

On Friday 2 May 2014 I was given a bottle of Referendum Blend whisky by the Good Spirits Company, of Bath Street, Glasgow. The retail value of this gift was £69. This gift was given after I had participated in a launch event for the whisky.

I am a member and supporter of Greenpeace.

I am an Honorary Associate of the National Secular Society.

[Ceased interest removed from entry: 08 March 2018]

I am a member of the European Parliamentary Forum on Population and Development (generally referred to as EPF), a networking organisation of parliamentarians from across Europe, including but not limited to EU member states. During Sessions 2 and 3 of the Scottish Parliament I participated at a number of conferences and study visits organised by the EPF, generally funded through the UNFPA or national family planning and sexual health agencies.
