I have been asked to reply.
The 2009 pre-Budget report announced that Government would save £650 million from cuts of 50 per cent. in consultancy spend and 25 per cent. in marketing and communications spend across Government by 2012-13. The 25 per cent. cut will be based on 2009-10 spending levels. It will be for individual Departments and arm's length bodies to decide their priority for future spending.
