Departmental Publicity

Volume 470: debated on Tuesday 8 January 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families how much has been spent by his Department on advertising in the last 12 months. (167962)

In 2006-07 the Department (then the Department for Education and Skills) spent £6.265 million on advertising as part of information campaigns. Additionally, the Department's spend in advertising vacancies at senior civil service level for the last financial year was £97,605.00. The costs for advertising vacancies below senior civil service level are not recorded in the same way and figures could be obtained only at disproportionate cost.
