Departmental Information Officers

Volume 505: debated on Friday 5 February 2010

To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government how many staff in his Department and its agencies (a) have the status of embedded communicators and (b) are members of the Government Communications Network but are not listed in the Central Office of Information White Book. (315167)

Embedded communicator is not an officially designated term in the Department so there is no clear definition of who would meet the criteria. However I can confirm that eight members of staff at the Department are members of the Government Communications Network working full-time on communications outside of the Communications Directorate and not listed in the Central Office of Information White Book.

Information about any communications staff employed by the Department's agencies is not held centrally.
