Councils across London spent £23million last year on their publicity a Freedom of Information request has revealed.
The request shows on average they spent £1m each.
The London Evening Standard report:
Tower Hamlets, one of London’s poorest boroughs, topped the list with a bill of £3.2 million, according to its budget documents.
The publicity bills included advertising local authority schemes, recruitment and producing council newspapers or magazines.
Tower Hamlets was followed by Camden with £2.2 million, Barking on £1.5 million and Newham £1.4 million in 2010/11, the last year for which figures are available. All are Labour-run.
