My Department has incurred no expenditure matching the description outlined by the Deputy.

Since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Department of Transport has worked as part of a cross Government Communications Group on a range of targeted public information campaigns. This group, led by the Department of an Taoiseach, is tasked with providing a coordinated and whole of government response to the pandemic. The Department of an Taoiseach should be contacted for details of such expenditure.
