The information requested falls within the responsibility of the Charity Commission. I have asked the Commission to reply.
Letter from Andrew Hind, dated 9 December 2009:
As the Chief Executive of the Charity Commission, I have been asked to respond to your written Parliamentary Question on redesigns of websites operated by the Charity Commission for England and Wales since 27 June 2007; and what the (a) cost to the public purse and (b) date of completion of each such redesign was (306193).
We have not redesigned our website in the period in question. However, in the interests of transparency, the last redesign of our website took place in 2006/07 at a cost of just over £49,000 and was launched formally in July 2007.
In addition, a major redesign of our website is currently underway, due for completion and launch in February 2010. We have budgeted £75,000 for this project.
I hope this information is helpful.
