Department of Public Expenditure and Reform
203. To ask the Minister for Public Expenditure and Reform the dates, attendees and purposes of all meetings he or his special advisers had with a person (details supplied) in each of the years 2016 to 2018 and to date in 2019. [6519/19]
As the Deputy will be aware, the person in question is a senior official in my Department. Consequently, like any senior official, he would meet with myself, the Minister of State, advisers and other senior officials in the Department of Public Expenditure and Reform in the normal course of his work.
The Deputy may wish to note that my diary for the period in question is a matter of public record and is available on my Department's website.
My special advisers had three meetings with the senior official in question in the time period specified, on 9 May 2016, 1 March 2018 and 3 July 2018, to discuss a range of departmental matters.
