Written answers (Question to Children)

I propose to take Questions Nos. 556 and 557 together.

My Department does not incur any costs in relation to the provision of landline telephony services to my home. Equally there are no specific hardware or software costs associated with IT services as there are no personal computers, printers, faxes or broadband services provided in my home by the Department.
