I refer the Deputy to my reply to Dáil Question No. 217 of 4th October on this matter.

The cost of each individual's flights were: Minister: €566.87; Special Advisor: €566.87; Secretary General: €509.98; Assistant Secretary General: €345.98. The cost for the Assistant Secretary General of €345.98 was for the outbound flight only. He was required to travel onwards to a meeting of Tourism Directors General arranged by the Austrian Presidency of the Council of the European Union (1 and 2 October 2018).
