Departmental Websites

Volume 449: debated on Wednesday 19 July 2006

To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government what websites come under her Department’s responsibility; and what the (a) cost and (b) number of visitors to those sites were in 2005-06. (83099)

I refer the hon. Lady to the answer given to the hon. Member for Wealden (Charles Hendry) on 4 July 2006, Official Report, column 958W for the list of websites under the Department’s responsibility and the cost of those sites. Visitor figures are shown as follows for DCLG sites April 2005-March 2006. DCLG websites are hosted on a number of platforms with different methodologies for evaluating usage. I have listed those sites for which visitor figures are available. Where estimated, figures are based on averages or projections of available data where hosting arrangements changed during the year.
