Gifts or hospitalities for the lucky!

Lobbying MPs, offering them hospitalities and taking them out on ‘fact-finding’ trips by the interested parties is much heard about and of course the MPs have to declare any interest which someone might reasonably consider to influence their actions or words as an MP.
But it is not often that the local councillors receive gifts or hospitalities from those who have wider national or international interests, but it does happen and must be declared!
In Harrow, the following councillors have provided information about the positions they hold, and gifts or hospitalities they have received:
