The full information requested by the Deputy is not immediately available, photography costs for 2011 to 2017 are set out below, costs for 2018 and 2019 (to date) will be collated and forwarded to the Deputy in due course.

Please note that it is the policy in the Department only to engage external services, including photography, where it is felt to be appropriate and cost-effective, e.g., to promote awareness of new schemes or to invite public consultations on policy matters. In doing so, the Department takes account of Government decisions and policy.
