Foreign Trips

MP’s are able to go on foreign delegations and I have been invited on many, many foreign trips since my election in May 2010. I have not been on any of these trips which either fell during Parliamentary sitting time and/or were at the taxpayer’s expense.

I have however been on three delegations in my seven years as your MP. None of these trips were at the taxpayers’ expense and all of them were when Parliament was not sitting and no votes were expected.
