HC Deb 12 December 1985 vol 88 cc774-5W
Mr. Jim Spicer

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what advertising agents have been appointed by his Department, or by the Central Office of Information on behalf of his Department, to handle campaigns involving the communication of information on subjects for which his Department is responsible to Parliament over each of the last 10 years, respectively; what was the subject of each campaign; and how much was spent on each campaign.

Mr. Kenneth Baker

Figures are available for the past five financial years only. To go back further would involve disproportionate costs.

The following table lists names of the agencies employed by my Department, the subject of the campaigns and the amount spent through the agency on each campaign.
