Departmental Public Relations

Volume 506: debated on Thursday 4 March 2010

To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport which public relations companies have had contracts with (a) his Department and (b) each of its (i) non-departmental public bodies and (ii) executive agencies since 2004. (319809)

The Department for Culture Media and Sport has had contracts with Harrison Cowley and Edelman public relations companies since 2004. Our executive agency, The Royal Parks, has had contracts with six companies: Bellenden, Brunswick, Cavendish, Chelgate, Colman Getty and London Communities Agency (LCA).

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