Livingstone's outside interests

Ken Livingstone: Revised entry
Ken Livingstone has been criticised by a committee of MPs over his failure to properly register outside interests totalling more than 150,000.

Mr Livingstone agreed to make a public apology to the House of Commons after the Commons Committee on Standards and Privileges said that he had not followed the principle of openess required by the MPs' code of conduct.

London Mayor
In his defence, Mr Livingstone said that had not sought to conceal his business interests and that he would immediately comply with the ruling.

He added: "My speaking engagements and newspaper columns are very much in the public domain and my company accounts are on public record."

This is the entry he made in the Register of Members' Interests on 31 January.

Remunerated directorships:
Localaction Ltd (Company formed to cover the publication of Socialist Economic Bulletin and my other writing and media work).

Sponsorship or financial or material support:
Temporary research, administrative and legal assistance provided by the Campaign for the Protection of Hunted Animals in connection with my Private Member's Bill.

Overseas visits:
23-25 January 1999, to Paris, accompanied by my partner, to speak at a student seminar 'Your Future in Europe,' organised by European Study Tours of London, who paid for our travel by Eurostar and two night's accommodation (Registered 4 March 1999)
