British Council: Information Officers

Volume 464: debated on Wednesday 10 October 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs how many press officers are employed by the British Council. (154634)

The British Council has two press officers working in London. In addition there are two members of staff who spend half their time on press office work.

In most of the 110 countries where the British Council operates, there is a member of staff who has responsibility for press office work although, particularly in smaller operations, this only forms part of their duties.
