§ Mr. Jenkin
To ask the Secretary of State for Defence how much his Department spent on public relations agencies in the last year for which figures are available; which public relations agencies are retained by each service; and for what reasons such agencies are retained. 
§ Dr. Moonie
The information requested is not held centrally and could be provided only at disproportionate cost.
However, since 1999–2000, Ministry of Defence's public relations expenditure has been published in the annual Departmental Performance Report, broken down into categories of RN, Army, RAF and civilian recruitment, PR, marketing and business support services, Chief of PR, sales promotion, scholarships and National Employers' Liaison Committee. Copies of these documents have been placed in the Library of the House.
