Just one week after being re-branded, the Government department responsible for the Waste Electrical Electronic Equipment (WEEE) and End-of-Life Vehicles (ELV) directives has returned to its old name of the Department for Trade and Industry.
Shortly after the election, it was renamed as the Department for Productivity, Energy and Industry. But its new Secretary of State Alan Johnson said the new name had been met with derision from the business world.
He told the Financial Times that the department's new name had started to become known as "penis" or "dippy".
This was yet another embarrassing episode for the department that has consistently missed legislation deadlines.
It delayed the WEEE directive until 2006 and pushed back full implementation of the ELV directive several times before February's final completion, narrowly avoiding a reprimand from the European Court of Justice.
