Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade: Ministerial Media Events

(Question No. 1349)


Mr Conroy: asked the Minister for Foreign Affairs, in writing, on 17 August 2015:

In respect of ministerial costs for media events and photo opportunities in 2014-15, what (a) date was each event held, (b) location was each event held at, (c) sum was spent on each event, (d) announcement and/or issue did the event relate to, and (e) was the expenditure for.


Ms Julie Bishop: The answer to the honourable member's question is as follows:

The Minister for Foreign Affairs holds many media engagements while prosecuting Australia's interests, both in Australia and when representing Australia overseas. To provide further details would entail a significant and unreasonable diversion of resources.
