The deputy convener of a Holyrood committee which rules on the MSPs' code of conduct has resigned from the post after failing to declare a gift.
Ken Macintosh received hospitality following a charity football match
Ken Macintosh did not register the £330 cost of hospitality he received at a charity football match and overnight accommodation courtesy of McDonald's.
The Labour MSP for Eastwood breached rules stating MSPs must declare gifts worth more than £250 within 30 days.
He said it was "a late declaration, a simple mistake, no more, no less".
Standards committee convener Brian Adam confirmed Mr Macintosh's resignation.
The MSPs' Code of Conduct requires them to register any foreign trips not paid for by the member, "whatever their purpose or nature".
Mr Macintosh had attended an inter-parliamentary football match in Cardiff in August last year.
He declared the gift in January as one costing more than £250, and gave its exact cost in March, but this breached the 30-day rule.
Mr Adam said the committee accepted that Mr Macintosh had "every intention" of publishing the information when he received it, as he had done following a similar visit to Cardiff in 2003.
"The committee concludes that there was no wilful intention to deceive the public or parliament on the part of Mr Macintosh," he added.
"However, setting aside Mr Macintosh's intention, his actions do constitute a breach of the Members' Interests Order.
"The code of conduct for MSPs makes it clear that responsibility in relation to registration of interests lies with each individual member and that a breach of the order is not a matter to be considered lightly."
The committee decided not to impose further sanctions on Mr Macintosh given the "public embarrassment" he has suffered and "the anticipated further public comment" arising from the complaint and publication of the report.
The decision to step down came on the same day First Minister Jack McConnell was cleared of breaking Scottish Parliament rules over his holiday at Kirsty Wark's Majorcan home.
The standards commissioner investigated five complaints against Mr McConnell, who failed publicly to declare the trips in his MSP register of interests.
Dr Jim Dyer ruled the accommodation did not amount to a benefit in kind and need not be registered.
Mr McConnell said he did nothing wrong over his trip at Hogmanay in 2004.
