Mr. Jenkin

To ask the Deputy Prime Minister pursuant to the Guidance on the Government use of Public Relations Consultants, Annex B to Guidance on the work of the Government Information Service, paragraph 6, on what grounds he decided that the core components of the Your Say information campaign on elected regional assemblies could not be carried out by the Government's own employees.

The marketing and advertising arm of Robson Brown have been contracted to work on other aspects of the campaign, including branding, leaflet design, event management and advertising. This is in line with current guidance and normal practice.
