I wish to advise the Deputy that no staff in my Department attended a summit (details supplied) or undertook advertising or sponsorship in respect of the summit in 2017 and 2018.
As regards the twelve State Bodies under the aegis of my Department, the information requested is an operational matter for the State Bodies themselves. I have referred the Deputy’s question to the Agencies and have requested that a response should issue within 10 days.
