Departmental Marketing

Volume 469: debated on Monday 10 December 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department if she will place in the Library a copy of the guidelines issued to staff maintaining her Department’s and its agencies’ corporate identity; and what the estimated annual cost is of (a) producing and (b) complying with such guidelines. (170232)

The costs of producing revised corporate guidelines was £21,878.50. This was a one-off cost—there is no annual cost for producing further guidelines.

There are no costs associated with complying with the guidelines. The Home Office logo did not change, so no new stationary was required. The guidelines were created to prevent the creation of new logos and identities with the intention of saving the Department money by enforcing the single Home Office logo use on all communication.

A copy of the corporate guidelines has been placed in the House Library.
