TWO  trips to overseas destinations have been recorded  by Cleethorpes MP Martin Vickers in the latest edition of the MPs’ Register of Financial Interests.

In November last year, he spent almost a week in Cyprus as part of a Conservative Friends of Cyprus delegation exploring political issues on the island and its relationship with Greece and Turkey.

The value of accommodation, subsistence and flight is put at £800.

In February this year, he was part of a parliamentary delegation that spent four days in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, to meet with members of the Shura Council, Government ministers, human rights groups and university officials to learn about the kingdom and  latest developments therein.
The value is recorded as being  £2,888.

Overseas  travel was also enjoyed by  Brigg and Goole MP Andrew Percy, who went on two trips to Israel - last July and last December - but no such excursions were made by Grimsby MP Melanie Onn, by Victoria Atkins (Louth and Horncastle) or by Sir Edward Leigh (Gainsborough).

 Mr Vickers lists his wife, Ann, as being employed as a part-time junior secretary, while Ms Onn has registered that she employed her mother, Jacqueline Jagger, as a casual caseworker until August last year.

Meanwhile, Sir Edward employs his wife, Mary, as an office manager.
During autumn and winter, knot become probably the commonest bird on the Cleethorpes Beach tideline. At this time of year, these small grey waders are grey all over, but a bird on the left has retained part of its bronze-coloured breeding plumage. Also in shot is a much larger herring gull.
