Written answers (Question to Agriculture)

The vast bulk of my Department's advertising is in respect of press notices in the specialised farming press, provincial and national newspapers. This expenditure includes the publication of Statutory Notices that are required to comply with various national and EU legislative requirements. Decisions on the placement of notices are made on a case-by-case basis, depending on the nature of the advertisement and the target audience.

In the first half of 2020, my Department will continue to place public information notices as required and will continue to undertake communications in respect of priorities for my Department including Brexit Preparedness, CAP Post-2020, One Health and Climate Action and Environment.
