Volume 503: debated on Wednesday 13 January 2010

To ask the Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families how much funding has been allocated for (a) editorial resources for and (b) enhancing and developing the Sure Start website in 2009-10 and 2010-11. (305339)

The Sure Start website was closed as part of the Cabinet Office web rationalisation programme. The content of the Sure Start, Local Authorities and Evety Child Matters (ECM) websites have been converged and these sites replaced with the current ECM website, which launched in May 2009. The Department allocated £341,288 for editorial resources and £274,117 for enhancing and developing the ECM website in the 2009-2010 financial year. Funding to cover the editorial resourcing and enhancement and development of ECM for the 2010-11 financial year has yet to be allocated.
