To ask the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster if it is Government policy that all Government departments should have web sites on the World Wide Web and that they should make their site addresses well known. [17442]

Whilst this is a matter for individual Departments to decide whether to establish and publish web sites on the World Wide Web, I am pleased to inform the hon. Member that all the major Departments of State do indeed already have public web sites.They form part of the nearly 600 public sector organisations that are accessible on World Wide Web via the Government Information Service run by CCTA (an Agency of my Department) through its web address The service is accessed by users between 1.5 and 3 million times a week.
