Information on the Department for Communities and Local Government expenditure on advertising is published every year in its Annual Report.

For the financial year 2008-09 I refer the hon. Member to the information provided on the Department's website at:
For previous years I refer the hon. Member to the appropriate departmental Annual Report, available in the House Library.
The Department will publish a breakdown of advertising expenditure in 2009-10 at the time of its next Annual Report.
