Today in your exclusive subscriber briefing...

Following a year that highlighted a gaping divide between metropolitan types and those outside that bubble, it does raise an eyebrow that just a third of the agencies on the new Government Communication Service roster are from outside London.

However, the GCS appears more broadly to have done what it had promised - delivered a new roster where the majority of agencies are SMEs and most had apparently not worked with Government before.

And while the process for agencies bidding for a place on the roster wasn't the most simple, I'm heartened that I've not heard major complaints from any agencies.

  Regards,
  Sam Burne James, news editor
