Public Relations

Volume 457: debated on Thursday 8 March 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Skills which public affairs firms were given contracts by (a) his Department and (b) public bodies sponsored by his Department in each of the last five years; and what the purpose was of each contract. (118453)

A complete answer to this question could be supplied only at disproportionate cost. I can tell you, however, since April 2005, the Department has held framework agreements with eight organisations to deliver Public Relations activity:

Geronimo PR, Hill and Knowlton, The Forster Company, Trimedia Communications Ltd, Fishburn Hedges, August One, Harrison Cowley and Porter Novelli

Details of the purpose of activity commissioned through each framework are not held centrally.
