[holding answer 11 November 1997]: Advertising and publicity expenditure by my Department for the years requested is as follows:

The Department of the Environment and the Department of Transport were amalgamated on 16 June 1997. Figures are shown separately for 1993–97 but aggregated for the current fiscal year.

Figures quoted include expenditure on statutory advertising (recruitment, official notices etc.) where applicable.

Expenditure figures for Executive Agencies have been compiled and supplied by the Agency concerned.

Information on publicity and advertising expenditure by non-departmental public bodies is not held centrally and could be compiled only at disproportionate cost.

Plans for 1998–99 have yet to be finalised.
