Mrs Thatcher came to power the bill for Government advertising has doubled to E150 million a year.
The water privatisation advertising campaign has cost more than that of Nescafe Gold Blend, Persil, Guinness and Coca Cola put together.
But in its enthusiasm for getting the message across has the Government strayed from legitimate government information to putting out political propaganda?
Vivian White reports on fears among senior civil servants that there has been a fundamental shift over the last ten years in the way that Government puts its policies into practice.

Softening the Blow
Every year over half a million people are made redundant. How do they cope with the stress of losing their jobs and how easy is it for them to find a new one?
A new industry called outplacement has rapidly developed to rebuild confidence and to train the redundant to tackle the job market. Philip Tibenham investigates the kind of services on offer. He asks some senior executives how useful they have found the experience of being outplaced, and looks at an outplacement project in a Yorkshire biscuit factory where over 1,000 workers are being made redundant.
