22.

asked the Minister for Defence if he will state in respect of himself and any Minister of State in his Department for the period 1 January 1980 to date: (i) whether any circulars on matters unconnected with his responsibilities have been sent on his behalf by post by officials of his Department to groups of his constituents, (ii) the number of different circulars involved; and (iii) the estimated number of items mailed.

No such circulars have been sent out by me or by the Minister of State at my Department. Correspondence in our capacity as Dáil Deputies is issued as appropriate and, as the Deputy is aware this is in accordance with well established and long-standing practice.
