Dear Department for Transport,

Can you provide the details of any businesses/agencies involved with the billboard and media advertising campaign as described in the press release below.

https://www.gov.uk/government/news/boost...

Information should include the name, contracted work, length and cost of each contract.

If the contract is to be witheld under section 43 can you provide a detailed explanation of your decision and how the department weighed the public interest against commercial sensitivity? For example:

For information to be witheld under Section 43 [commercial sensitivity], the following MUST be provided:

-Details of the exact FOIA exemption.
-Details of who would be prejudiced – see MoJ guidance above, page 4.
-A “Public Interest Test” where the arguments for and against release of the information should be discussed.
- If release of the information could prejudice a third party, they should be consulted with – see FOIA Section 45 Code of Practice Part IV .
- In addition much information from recent public sector contracts should be made available, especially if they are from after 2005, the start date of the FOIA – see ICO Awareness guidance 5 annexe – public sector contracts.

Further, can you identify any information that might not be commercially sensitive?

Yours faithfully,

Stephen Delahunty

Department for Transport
