Newham Council Highest Spender in London on PR and Publicity

The Evening Standard, using figures buried on page 43 of the council's statement of accounts for 2008/09, has reported that Newham council spends more than any other London borough on publicity.

Newham's total spending of close to £4 million includes £1.4 million on staff and the same amount on 'other publicity' (which does not include health promotion, road safety or similar campaigns, statutory notices or recruitment advertising). It was one of six local authorities that spent more than £3 million on publicity and PR in 2008/09.

That's an awful lot of promotional material with the grinning face of the Great Helmsman on it!
