In line with the Commission's Code of Conduct for Members of the Commission, each Commissioner publishes a Declaration of Interests.

A signed, authentic version is published at the bottom of this page.

A machine-readable version of all Declarations is also published. This is in line with the requirements of the Code of Conduct.
