To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Skills (1) what has been the cost of developing the new Teachernet emergency planning website; [109416](2) when his Department will set a date for the launch of the Teachernet emergency planning website; [109417](3) how many

(a) teachers and (b) local education authorities have been consulted regarding the content of the Teachernet emergency planning website. [109418]

Development of the Teachenet emergency planning website has cost approximately £60,000. My Department invited all local education authorities (LEAs) in England to identify staff and teachers who would like to test the site. 17 LEAs responded that they would like to take part. We have not yet received responses from all of them so we do not yet know how many individuals have been involved.I will set a date for launch of the website when I am satisfied that all responses have been received and properly considered, and consequent improvements to the site have been made.
