Department of Education and Skills
Question 247: To ask the Minister for Education and Skills the total photography costs for his Department since coming to office; the list of occasions for which photographers were booked over the past year; the breakdown of costs associated with each occasion that a photographer was used; if there is a policy around the booking of photographers within his Department; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [9661/12]
The total photography costs for my Department since 9 March 2011 are €381.15 (€315 + €66.15 VAT). This cost relates to copies of photographs taken of a school project and their use on an A1 display board which was submitted to the Royal Institute of Architects of Ireland for the joint RIAI/Department colloquium on school design which was held on 30 June 2011 in Dublin.
