unstar this property answer text <p>​Communication is core to diplomacy and is a component of many roles in the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO): it is therefore not possible to specify the exact number of staff who have a communications remit.</p><p>The FCO's central Communication Directorate had 88 staff on its UK based headcount as of 31 January 2017.</p><p>The Communication Directorate consists of four departments: a Media Office, a Campaigns and Engagement Department, a Digital Transformation Unit and a Counter Daesh Communications Department. Collectively they have responsibility for a range of activities to achieve the FCO's priorities of protecting our national security, generating economic growth and helping British people overseas. These include increasing Britain's influence in the world through sponsoring the British Council and the Marshall and Chevening Scholarships schemes, promoting trade and investment with the UK through activities on the GREAT Britain campaign and providing travel advice so British people can keep themselves safe when overseas.</p><p>Salary costs for the Communication Directorate from 2009/10 to 2015/16 inclusive were as follows:</p><table><tbody><tr><td><p><strong>Year</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>Salary costs</strong></p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2015/16</p></td><td><p>£3,025,594</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2014/15</p></td><td><p>£3,243,852</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2013/14</p></td><td><p>£2,801,066</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2012/13</p></td><td><p>£2,498,697</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2011/12</p></td><td><p>£3,070,242</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2010/11</p></td><td><p>£3,552,733</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2009/10</p></td><td><p>£3,593,416</p></td></tr></tbody></table><p> </p><p> </p><p>Our management information system does not allow us to go back further than 2009/10. Sourcing equivalent data for the years 2006/7 – 2008/9 inclusive is therefore not available except at disproportionate cost.</p>
