I can advise the Deputy that the total cost of photography incurred by my Department since coming into office is €2,031. The list of occasions for which photographers were booked and the breakdown of invoiced costs to date associated with each occasion that a photographer was used are as follows:

Small Business Advisory Group Launch - €409;

Irish Ambassadors for Female Entrepreneurship - €223;

One Millionth Document Filed Online at the Companies Registration Office –

€484;

Ministerial image shot for Repeat use - €245;

Launch of the Final Report of the Sales Law Review Group - €386.

Launch of the Report of "The Voice of Small Business" – €284

The Department uses external photographers sparingly and selects from a number of photographic agencies on file. In addition and with a view to keeping costs to a minimum, the Department uses its own facilities and staff to take photographs in-house.
