Total Interests: 15

Latest alteration: Gifts - 13/02/24

Source: Statement of Registrable Interests - this contains interests declared as at 16/08/22 and alterations since then.  

This statement contains interests declared as being held on 16/08/22 and any alterations since then, including new interests and amendments and deletions to existing interests. The date of an alteration is when it was declared to the register, not when the change occurred.

Unfortunately, due to Senate restrictions the interests of senators' spouses/partners and dependent children are not publicly disclosable.

Open Politics has amended the wording and formatting of some MPs' and Senators' declared interests to improve readability or to correct mistakes. To notify Open Politics of an error or omission, contact us.

Problems: Whish-Wilson breached the Senate register rules by not declaring his September 2023 trip to the United States within the required 35 days.
