HC Deb 03 May 1988 vol 132 cc374-5W
Mr. Gould

To ask the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster if he will place in the Library copies of the brief given to advertising agencies bidding for the department for Enterprise campaign.

Mr. Kenneth Clarke

Advertising agencies working on Government accounts are appointed through the Central Office of Information which also provides the account brief. COI regards briefs inviting tenders from contractors as confidential commercial invitation and I see no reason to invite it to publish such briefs.
