Advertising Advisory Committee

Volume 496: debated on Thursday 16 July 2009

To ask the Minister for the Cabinet Office on what dates the Advisory Committee on Advertising has met in the last 12 months. (250318)

The Government Strategic Marketing Advisory Board (GSMAB) replaced the Advisory Committee on Advertising (ACA) in January 2008.

The GSMAB has a wider remit than the ACA, not only holding the Central Office for Information (COI) to account but also all Government Departments.

Under the new terms of reference, GSMAB aims to meet at least four times annually at the chairman’s discretion.

Over the last 12 months the board has met on the following dates:

4 September 2008

2 December 2008

24 February 2009

10 June 2009
