Departmental Internet

Volume 501: debated on Wednesday 2 December 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government what the cost was of maintaining his Department’s website in the 2008-09 financial year; and what the forecast cost is of maintaining websites within his responsibility in the 2009-10 financial year. (302412)

I refer the hon. Member to the answer I gave the hon. Member for Romford (Andrew Rosindell) on 6 May 2009, Official Report, columns 234-35W.

Regarding costs for 2009-10, the annual running costs for this technology platform are fixed and we are contractually committed to all elements of the budget.

In line with the Public Accounts Committee recommendation and Central Office of Information guidance for Government Departments, we will supply cost data for the financial year 2009-10 in April 2010.
