§ Mr. Fisher
To ask the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what expenditure was made by his Department on(a) the arts and (b) design in the last financial year.
§ Mr. Maclean
During the course of carrying out its publicity activities, my Department does incur expenditure on design but does not contribute to the arts. Creative design is produced as an integral part of any given publicity campaign, consequently information in the form asked for is not readily available.
