History

The Communication Group bought Forth Public Relations in 1995. A new firm 3X1 was created from within on 1 January 2001.[1] At some point after late 2001 The Communication Group Scotland office closed and the Communication Group retrenched to one office in London. this remains the case in 2008.[2] PR Week reported in 1995:

One of the main beneficiaries of the problems at Westminster Strategy, The Communication Group's government relations division has been transformed over the past year with the arrival of Peter Bingle and Marianne Yarwood, both former directors of Westminster Strategy. The division now has around 12 employees and an estimated fee income of more than pounds 1 million and is building a reputation at the public relations/crisis management end of the business with a strong Brussels offering, via the Entente network. Major clients: Police Federation, British Nuclear Fuels Ltd, Newspaper Federation, Scotch Whisky Association, Vickers, Rolls Royce Motors.[3]
