Funding of social media activity

The request was partially successful.

Dear Cabinet Office,

It would appear that the current Secretary of State for Health is using Twitter to advertise the progress of the vaccination drive. For example see this tweet:

https://twitter.com/sajidjavid/status/14...

Please provide me with the following information:

- Whether it's acceptable practice for such information to contain party political branding when it involves the NHS or any other government body or function provided by the government.
- Who was paid for the design of this tweet and any others like it
- How much it cost
- Where the funds to pay for it came from

Yours faithfully,

P Seurre
