| SPAIN'S government has spent four million euros on publicity for its controversial labour reform, recent reports have revealed.
Mariano Rajoy's cabinet have managed to cut their publicity bill by 65 per cent, although campaigns for the labour reform, for traffic awareness and the Armed Forces account for 53 per cent of their budget and each one costs over four million.
According to information released by vice-president Soraya Sáenz de Santamaría (pictured), the remaining 47 per cent of the publicity budget will fund the remaining 58 campaigns for each of the ministries.
The ministry of food, agriculture and the environment has the highest number of campaigns, says Sáenz de Santamaría, with 16 planned for 2012, but the bulk of the money – after traffic awareness, the Armed Forces and the labour reform - is being spent on ministry of the interior campaigns.
These account for 10.3 million euros.
