I have asked the chief executive of the Central Office of Information to write to the right hon. Member.

Letter from Mark Lund, dated 7 April 2010:

asking for COI expenditure on marketing, advertising and public relations from 2008-2010.

The Central Office of Information's marketing, advertising and public relations expenditure in 2008-09 was £380.8m.

The COI cannot provide planned expenditure for 2009-10 as it is determined by the requirements of our Client Departments.

Expenditure to date for 2009-10 can only be provided once the annual accounts have been fully audited.
