Other major agencies to have signed up to the PRCA/PRWeek pledge include Burson-Marsteller, Grayling, Portland and Cohn & Wolfe.

The PRCA took the step earlier this month (PRWeek, 14 October) of placing a list on its site of all member agencies who commit to paying at least the minimum wage to interns.

As PRWeek went to press, 34 agencies had signed up to appear on the PRCA list.

But of the ten biggest UK agencies - according to the PRWeek Top 150 Consultancies table - only Edelman and MHP had signed up.
