To ask the Secretary of State for International Development how many (a) marketing officers, (b) communications officers and (c) press officers are employed in his Department; and whatthe total expenditure on communications for his Department was on (i) Government Information and Communication Service staff and (ii) other (A) press officers, (B) special advisers and (C) staff in the last year for which figures are available. (104355)

The requested staff figures are in the following table.


Marketing officers


Press officers


Communication is integral to DFID’s work and many staff in different teams are involved in communication work. It is therefore not possible to break down communications expenditure by types of staff, including special advisers. To disaggregate this information would incur disproportionate costs.
