Departmental Publications

Volume 455: debated on Wednesday 10 January 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for International Development how many graphic designers his Department employed for the production and publication of its (a) white papers and (b) departmental reports in each year since 2003; and if he will make a statement. (113206)

DFID does not employ graphic designers, but contracts graphic design companies or printing firms with a graphic design capacity to design its publications and reports. This includes White Papers and departmental reports. DFID has used one company on its recent White Paper published in 2006, and one company has produced the departmental report annually since 2003. DFID does not have a record of how many people were employed by these firms as graphic designers.
