 195. Ms Shortall Information on Róisín Shortall Zoom on Róisín Shortall  asked the Minister for Social and Family Affairs Information on Mary Coughlan Zoom on Mary Coughlan  the total estimated cost of changes, including the dis-use of old stationery, the purchase of new letterheads, stationery, and changes to websites and so on and all other costs incurred as a result of the creation or change in her departmental name and responsibilities; and if she will make a statement on the matter. [18795/02]

Minister for Social and Family Affairs (Mary Coughlan): Information on Mary Coughlan Zoom on Mary Coughlan In order to avoid incurring additional costs, the steps necessary to give effect to the change of name of the Department are being taken on a progressive basis. Accordingly, as existing stocks of forms, etc. are depleted, they are being replaced by stocks bearing the new name. Similarly, other aspects of the change of name – such as change of signage – will be implemented as opportunities arise. Therefore, it is not anticipated that the name change will result in additional costs arising for the Department.
