To ask Her Majesty's Government what steps, if any, they plan to take to ask Haringey London Borough Council to conform with the Code of Recommended Practice on Local Authority Publicity in the regularity of its magazine publications.

The Publicity Code is statutory guidance that local authorities must have regard to when producing publicity, defined as 'any communication in whatever form, addressed to the public at large or a section of the public'. The Secretary of State has the power to direct local authorities to comply with the Code if needed.

My officials are looking into concerns regarding Haringey Council's magazine publications, and a senior official will take up the matter directly with the Council's Chief Executive in the first instance.

We will keep this matter under review.
