Thames Gateway: London Communications Agency

Volume 468: debated on Monday 26 November 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government (1) how much Thames Gateway has paid to the London Communications Agency in fees to date; and how much it expects to pay (i) in the current financial year and (ii) over the remainder of the contracted period; and if she will make a statement; (167699)

(2) if she will place in the Library (a) a summary of Thames Gateway's contract with the London Communications Agency, with particular reference to (i) the range of functions it covers, (ii) the frequency with which work is to be provided and (iii) the staffing commitment and (b) examples of the Agency's work for Thames Gateway produced during the last 12 months.

The Thames Gateway Executive does not have a contract with the London Communications Agency and currently has no plans to enter into one. No fee payments have therefore been made. It is open to the individual local regeneration partnerships and other organisations in the Thames Gateway to employ communication agencies directly.
