Rural Payments Agency: Information Officers

Volume 471: debated on Monday 28 January 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs for what reasons the number of communication and press staff listed as working for the Rural Payments Agency in the Central Office of Information's White Book differs from the answer of 8 October 2007, Official Report, column 280W, on the Rural Payments Agency. (181315)

Hansard correctly reports that the Rural Payments Agency (RPA) employs one press officer who spends half their time on press activities.

The RPA communications team, of which the press office forms part, is also responsible for a wide range of other communications functions. These include publications, advertising, internal communication and web management. All these staff are listed in the RPA's entry in the White Book.
