To ask Her Majesty's Government what percentage of the budget preparing for a no-deal Brexit has been spent on advertisements (1) in newspapers, (2) on radio and television, and (3) on social media.

The Treasury allocated £100m to Cabinet Office to deliver the No-Deal Brexit Public Information Campaign in August 2019. The costs of the campaign will be published monthly on, as part of routine government transparency. This will be broken down by supplier. The Treasury does not hold a detailed breakdown of how departments have allocated funding for no-deal preparations, therefore it is difficult to determine the exact amount spent on any other advertising delivered by individual departments.
