Overseas visits

From 1 to 3 March 2013 I visited Israel and Palestine regarding humanitarian concerns. During this visit, as part of a cross-party delegation, I met the UK Ambassador to Israel, elected representatives and local community representatives. The cost of transport and accommodation was £1,175 and was met by the Council for European Palestinian Relations (CEPR), an independent not-for-profit organisation which has been established to promote dialogue and understanding between European, Palestinian and Arab parliamentarians and policy-makers (of Rue Montoyer 39, Brussels 1000 Belgium).

From 2 to 11 October 2012 I visited Venezuela as part of the international delegation of election observers to the Presidential election. The costs of the trip were $7,953 (including return flights and seven nights hotel accommodation). The costs were met by National Electoral Council (Consejo National electoral) which is an independent branch of state with responsibility for overseeing the electoral process and ensuring that it is free and fair (located at Centro Simón Bolívar, Edificio Sede del Consejo Nacional Electoral, Frente a la Plaza Caracas. Caracas, Venezuela).

From 6 to 11 November 2008 I visited the Gaza Strip on a fact-finding mission. The costs of the trip, including flights, food and accommodation, were approximately £2,083 (€2,500). The costs of this trip were met by the European Campaign to End the Siege on Gaza which is a combination of volunteer European groups whose purpose is to end the siege on Gaza and establish a Palestinian State (located at 100A Crown House, North Circular Road, London, NW10 7PN).

From 13 to 16 March 2009 I visited Syria to meet the President and relevant groups to discuss Palestine/Gaza and the refugee situation. The costs of the trip were approximately £1,300 (including return flights from Glasgow/London/Damascus and three nights hotel accommodation in Damascus). The costs were met by the European Campaign to End the Siege on Gaza, which is a combination of volunteer European groups whose purpose is to end the siege on Gaza and establish a Palestinian State (located at 100A Crown House, North Circular Road, London NW10 7PN).
