To ask the Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change what the budget for his Department’s website is for 2008-09; and how many of his Department’s staff are employed to manage the website. (250791)

The current DECC website was put in place at no cost as a temporary measure while a new site for the Department is developed. This current site provides links to the BERR and DEFRA websites where policy content for Energy and Climate Change issues continues to be hosted. £45,000 has so far been allocated for the replacement site for 2008-09. One member of staff is currently employed in managing the website.
