Departmental Logos

Volume 492: debated on Wednesday 20 May 2009

To ask the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster with reference to the answer to the hon. Member for North-East Hertfordshire of 31 October 2006, Official Report, column 323W, on departmental branding, what the Cabinet Office's policy is on the (a) re-use and (b) disposal of departmental-branded goods which become out of date following machinery of Government changes; and in what manner the sign of the Deputy Prime Minister's Office was disposed of. (270294)

The Cabinet Office logo is used as a corporate image and is included on the majority of material produced by the Department. Wherever possible the Department would make use of any branded material that was outdated, or recycle any items that could not be reused.

The Department for Communities and Local Government have confirmed that the sign of the Deputy Prime Minister's Office was given to my right hon. Friend the Member for Kingston upon Hull, East (Mr. Prescott) when he left office. The used value of the sign was minimal.
