Written answers (Question to Transport)

The costs incurred to date by my Department for the provision of telephone service in the home of Minister Varadkar amount to just over €700. This is for the provision of a secure ISDN line. The Department does not pay for the Minister's home line or broadband.  No costs have been incurred in the case of Minister of State Kelly and Minister of State Ring.
