(5) Where can Members get the details and findings of these publicly funded focus groups.

Ms Gallagher: The answer to the member's question is as follows:

I am not prepared to authorise the use of the considerable resources that would be involved in providing the detailed information required to answer the Member's question.

Public service—advertising

(Question No 1964)

Mrs Dunne asked the Minister for Women, upon notice, on 5 March 2008:

(1) In relation to advertisements and promotion in the area of your portfolio of Women, how much will be spent in the 2007-08 financial year on advertising, promotion, the dissemination of policy information or other information which included the Minister's photograph and/ or a message from the Minister;

(2) What is the individual breakdown for print media, television, radio and other media such as brochures including direct mail by (a) the Minister's Office, (b) the Minister's department, agency or administrative units, (c) another agency/ department/administrative unit or Minister's office on behalf of the Minister or the department/agency/administrative unit;

(3) Did the Minister or the Minister's office approve the publication in each case;

(4) How much has been allocated for these activities in the 2007-08 financial year to date by the (a) Minister's office and (b) department/agency/administrative unit.

Ms Gallagher: The answer to the member's question is as follows:

(1) After careful consideration of the questions, and advice provided by my Department, I have determined that the information sought is not in an easily retrievable form, and that to collect and assemble the information sought solely for the purpose of answering the question would be a major task, requiring a considerable diversion of resources. In this instance, I do not believe that it would be appropriate to divert resources from the provision of direct services to clients, for the purposes of answering the Member's question.

Public service—consulting services

(Question No 1965)

Mrs Dunne asked the Minister for Women, upon notice, on 5 March 2008:

(1) How much was spent on consulting services for your portfolio for Women in the 2007-08 financial year to date;

(2) Can the Minister provide details of the individual contracts as outlined in part (1) as to (a) who were they awarded to, (b) at what cost, (c) for what purpose and (d) how were they awarded, for example, by tender or with certificate of exemption.
