Departmental Leaflets

Volume 475: debated on Monday 28 April 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions how many and what proportion of his Department's public information leaflets are available online on (a) his Department's and (b) the Directgov website. (195772)

The Department for Work and Pensions public information leaflets are mainly published through its agencies' websites (Jobcentre Plus, Child Support Agency and The Pension Service) and the DWP website links to these. Of the 66 Public Information leaflets produced by the Department 57 are currently available. A further nine are due to be published shortly and these will replace other leaflets currently on the sites.

Directgov does not hold leaflets on its site but incorporates information into its core pages or has external links to customer leaflets and information stored on other websites—DWP, Inland Revenue, Jobcentre Plus, Veterans Agency, HMRC, CSA, Department of Health, Pensions Service et al. Directgov also links to welsh versions of leaflets with links to English versions of leaflets where the Welsh version is not available.
