Written answers (Question to Housing)

Given that Project Ireland 2040 is a Government of Ireland initiative, the Department of An Taoiseach through its Strategic Communications Unit had overall responsibility for arrangements surrounding the launch of Project Ireland 2040, including arrangements for media and other briefings.

As part of such arrangements, my Department's National Planning Framework team supported a number of briefing sessions with different media commentators on 14 and 15 February and again on the morning of the launch in Sligo on 16 February.
