Written answers (Question to Children)

I propose to take Questions Nos. 558 and 559 together.

A total of €1,926 has been paid by my Department in respect of landline telephone services to my constituency office in Clondalkin, Dublin 22 since my Department was established in June 2011. There are no other direct costs incurred by my Department associated with the running of this office.
