Notes: 1. There were no costs incurred on consultants for any of the campaigns set out above. 2. There is no central record of Home Office spend on publishing activities. To collate this information would incur disproportionate costs. 3. There were no costs on Professional Training associated with the campaign set out in the table above. 4. There were no costs on “other activities”; the costs given cover the total costs of each campaign. The figures for advertising refer to the cost of media for TV, print, radio, cinema and posters net of VAT for public facing advertising campaigns. They do not include classified recruitment advertising or digital advertising. 5. The Alcohol Harm Reduction and Drugs campaigns are both cross-government campaigns. The figures that have been provided are those billed to the Home Office.
