Written answers (Question to Taoiseach)

I have never met the Strategic Communications Unit (SCU). The last time I met the Director of the SCU was at the Project Ireland 2040 event in Cork and Waterford on 9th March 2018. I received a briefing on the broad communications strategy for Project Ireland 2040 at a meeting in December 2017. This meeting was also attended by the Minister for Finance and Public Expenditure, the Secretaries General of the Departments of Finance, Public Expenditure & Reform and Taoiseach, the Taoiseach's Chief of Staff and the Director of the SCU.
