Departmental Advertising

Volume 506: debated on Wednesday 3 March 2010

To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport 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 each year since 2005. (319764)

The available information regarding expenditure on advertising by the Department and its agency, the Royal Parks, is set out in the table. In respect of the Department, it shows spend on recruitment advertising; other advertising spend is not separately analysed on the Department's accounting system and can be collated only at disproportionate cost.

The Department does not centrally maintain records on advertising spend in respect of its non-departmental bodies. It would incur disproportionate cost to obtain and collate this information.
