Department of Health
Departmental Staff Data
324. To ask the Minister for Health the number of staff in his Department that attended a summit (details supplied) in Dublin in 2017 and 2018, respectively; the cost to his Department or agency under the remit of his Department; if his Department or an agency under the remit of his Department undertook advertising or sponsorship in respect of the summit; the cost in this regard; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [9205/19]
The information requested by the Deputy is not routinely available. My Department's Learning and Development unit has advised that it has no record of any staff attending the conference in question. Should I learn otherwise I will revert to the Deputy.
Information regarding agencies under the aegis of the Department are operational matters for the relevant CEO/Director/Chairperson and the Deputy may wish to contact them directly. I have forwarded the question to the HSE for direct reply.
