Department of Justice, Equality and Law Reform
Question 171: To ask the Minister for Justice and Law Reform the amount of money, under each heading, spent by him on refreshments for meetings and functions, including sandwiches, teas and coffees, and bottled water, in 2008, 2009 and to date in 2010 in tabular form; the name of the company used to supply the refreshments and the address; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [46917/10]
As a matter of general practice my office does not purchase refreshments specifically for meetings and functions I am involved in. Other costs may arise in my Department for the provision of these items for meetings held by Department officials. However, I am advised that any such expenditure is not likely to be significant.
