Departmental Advertising

Volume 506: debated on Monday 1 March 2010

To ask the Secretary of State for International Development how much (a) his Department and (b) each (i) non-departmental public body and (ii) executive agency for which his Department is responsible spent on advertising in 2009. (318835)

The Department for International Development (DFID) works in over 100 countries across the world and advertising can play a significant role in achieving development programme objectives including the promotion of health issues. It is not possible to disaggregate these costs from development programme expenditure without incurring disproportionate costs.

The Commonwealth Scholarship Commission spent £5,888.90 on advertising in 2009. DFID is not responsible for any executive agencies.
