Parliamentary written answers, DoE and Welsh Office, 17 January 1994

A table showing total expenditure on publicity by the DoE for each year since 1985-86 was published by Environment Secretary John Gummer (col 364). For 1991-92 and 1992-93 this was £2.7 million and £13.4m respectively; with spending on advertising within these publicity totals of £0.8m and £6.9m respectively. The figure for 1992-93 is higher than usual because it includes expensive publicity for council tax as well as CO2 reduction. The highest spend in the past eight years was £31.5m in 1989-90, which includes costs associated with community charge.

The use of reserves by Welsh councils in the financial year 1992-93 was listed for each authority in a table by Welsh minister Gwilym Jones (col 398). The total use of reserves was £15.9 million, of which £15.7m was county expenditure and £0.2m district spending.
