I refer to the answer to my question without notice on 16 May 2017 in which the Leader of the House informed the house that the director of communications is responsible for authorising media statements prior to public release.
(1) Is Daniel Pastorelli the director to which she referred?
(2) If no to (1), to whom was she referring?
(3) If yes to (1), from what date was he appointed?
      (4) Further to (3), did his responsibility for the authorisation process for government media statements commence on the date of his appointment?
(5) If no to (4), on what date did this responsibility commence?
      (6) Further to (1), is she able to confirm the assessment in The Weekend West of 20 May 2017 that Mr Pastorelli is ''good on detail''?
