65. Deputy Micheál Martin asked the Taoiseach when the citizen research for the strategic communications unit will commence. (Question 18865/18 asked on 01 May 2018)

The Taoiseach: The citizen research will commence once the opposition parties have been afforded an opportunity to review the proposed material. It is anticipated that this review will be initiated in the coming weeks and the subsequent survey will issue in late May 2018. Once the survey has been run and results collected and analysed, it is intended to publish it.
