The Department spent no money on public relations and public affairs consultants in the financial years 2010-11 to 2012-13. This financial year the Department has spent £5,000 on the development of a strategic communications framework and report for the £1 billion broadband programme that the Department is tasked with delivering.

In respect of the Department's associated public bodies we do not hold this information centrally.
