Fiona Mactaggart

The Home Office logo has not been subject to redesign in 2003–04, but in the previous years you refer to, work was undertaken. The logo was redesigned to ensure the Home Office work was clear to the public and stakeholders.

Costs involved were as follows: (a) and (b) research, project management and design and orders for new stationer y–£147,505.06. (c)website design–£18 024.50. (d)The logo element of 'other material featuring new logos between 1997–98 and 2003–04' would be covered in individual project/publication/media initiatives and were not funded by or attributed to the corporate logo change initiative.

No costs were written off due to lack of use or destruction of materials featuring previous logos, as the low levels of old stock continued to be used.
