Central Office of Information: Publications

Volume 469: debated on Monday 10 December 2007

To ask the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster when the Cabinet Office first published the Central Office of Information’s White Book; when publication of the next edition is planned; and for what reasons the Trades Union Congress is listed in the current edition. (171385)

The White Book was first published in 1978. The next edition will be published in February 2008.

The White Book contains details of a wide range of information contacts in Government Departments and in many other bodies with which Government deals, including organisations such as the CBI, the BBC and Ofcom. The Trades Union Congress is included as a body that comes under this broad category and has been listed since 1994.
