I have asked the chief executive of the Central Office of Information to write to the hon. Member.
Letter from Mark Lund, dated 8 February 2010:
As Chief Executive of the Central Office of Information (COI), I have been asked to reply to your Parliamentary Question  asking for clarification on the Media Monitoring Unit.
The MMU provides in-depth news briefings for press officers, policy officials and Ministers across all government departments, the public sector and regional public bodies.
The subscription information listed for Cabinet Office included all work carried out on their behalf.
The Information listed as Cabinet Office Communications was work carried out on behalf of another department.
The subscription listed as blank has already been included in the subscription for a department within the table and should be disregarded.
