Department of Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation
272. To ask the Minister for Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation the number of staff in her Department who attended a summit (details supplied) in Dublin in 2017 and 2018, respectively; the cost to her Department or agency under the remit of her Department; if her Department or an agency associated with her Department undertook advertising or sponsorship in respect of the summit; the cost in this regard; and if she will make a statement on the matter. [9196/19]
No staff from my Department attended the summit (details supplied) in 2017. In 2018, three staff attended the summit, at a cost of €1,700 in total. My Department did not undertake advertising or sponsorship in respect of the summit. Advertising and sponsorship of events is a day to day operational matter for the agencies and not one in which I have a function.
