Liverpool City Council has appointed Daniel Harris, a former
special adviser to Clare Short, Secretary of State for International
Development, as its new head of PR. Harris, who starts work next month,
replaces Peter Davies, who left three months ago to become head of media
and publicity at the London borough of Tower Hamlets. Harris will report
to director of personnel and administration, Ian Jones, and oversee a
20-strong team focusing on a range of public relations activities.
