On the announcement of a general election, the Cabinet Secretary issues guidance to Departments on their activities during the pre-election period. This will be published on the Cabinet Office website.
Regular statistical releases and reports will continue to be issued and published during the election period on dates which have been pre-announced.
The Department for Communities and Local Government was created on 5 May 2006. Copies of every issue of the staff magazine produced up until early December 2007 were placed in the Library of the House in response to a question from the hon. Member for Brentwood and Ongar (Mr. Pickles) on 4 December 2007, Official Report, column 1152W. Copies of the Department's staff magazine have since been placed in the Library on a regular basis. I can confirm that the most recent edition is now available.
