(2) what products featuring departmental or Government branding were procured by (a) the Cabinet Office and (b) the Prime Minister’s Office in each of the last five years;

(3) how much was spent on products featuring departmental or Government branding by (a) the Cabinet Office and (b) the Prime Minister’s Office in each of the last five years.

For these purposes the Prime Minister’s Office forms an integral part of the Cabinet Office. The Cabinet Office, like all departments, uses various forms of branding in publications and printed material to differentiate itself from other Government departments. The information is not held in a format that would enable the questions to be answered without incurring disproportionate cost.
