Birmingham on the defensive

Birmingham City Council has defended itself following reports that it spends £10m a year on publicity.

The TaxPayers’ Alliance this week named the council as the biggest spender in 2006-07, based on data ­received from 470 councils.

Birmingham’s comms dir­ector Deborah Davis said: ‘We are spending less per head on publicity… and our percentage increase over 10 years is the lowest of the top 20 authorities on the list.’
