§ Mr. Moonman
asked the Minister for the Civil Service what percentages and totals of his advertising budget were allocated to weekly periodicals and the Labour Weekly, in particular, at 31st December 1975 and to 30th June 1976.
§ Mr. Charles R. Morris
Apart from a small provision for advertising for accommodation for civil servants in the London area, the advertising budget available to the Civil Service Department is used solely for recruitment purposes. The journals in which my Department advertises are chosen as those most appropriate to the need, with particular regard to cost effectiveness. No separate budget is allocated to weekly journals, and details of the corresponding expenditure are not readily available. No advertisements were, however, placed inLabour Weekly.
