Departmental Marketing

Volume 470: debated on Thursday 24 January 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Business, Enterprise and Regulatory Reform how many posters or displays there are in the offices of his Department and its agencies displaying the names and photographs of Ministers; and what the cost has been of producing such posters or displays in the last five years. (179838)

We have one display board in the reception area of BERR’s headquarters at 1 Victoria street, London, bearing the names and photographs of its Ministers, the Permanent Secretary and his team. We cannot identify the specific cost of producing this board, as it was produced as part of a wider re-branding exercise. We have produced around 320 A3 colour posters showing the ministerial team in the current year. These have been produced in-house at negligible cost. It is not possible to provide costs for display boards or posters for previous years without incurring disproportionate costs.

The Insolvency Service has no pictures or displays featuring Ministers in any of their buildings.

Companies House and UK Trade and Investment have no records of producing posters or displays for their offices with the names and photographs of Ministers in the last five years.
