I propose to take Questions Nos. 196 and 197 together.

My Department did not incur any expenditure on social media training or social media consultancy from 2011 to 2017. In 2018, €1,900 has been expended on consultancy on the preparation of a social media campaign as part of the on-going awareness and education campaign on waste and recycling.
