Departments: Reorganisation

Volume 465: debated on Thursday 25 October 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Business, Enterprise and Regulatory Reform what the estimated cost of re-branding is expected to be following the formation of his Department. (157839)

Costs to date associated with the use of the name of the new Department are approximately £77,000. These include the costs of design, items such as new signage and changes to the website and other electronic media. As promised in my answer to a question from the hon. Member for Richmond Park, (Susan Kramer) on 17 July 2007, Official Report, column 278W, we plan to provide a full account of extra expenditure relating to the establishment of the new Department to the Library of both Houses at the time of the winter supplementary estimates in November.
