[24602/02]

Minister for Transport (Mr. Brennan): Information on Seamus Brennan Zoom on Seamus Brennan Since official language equality has become one of the principles of quality customer service, my Department has incurred specific costs of approximately €4,000. Other expenditure is likely to be incurred as the Department continues to implement this policy. For example, as they come to be published, documents such as the statement of strategy, annual report, and the customer service action plan will be made available in both English and Irish.
