Departmental Internet

Volume 508: debated on Wednesday 7 April 2010

To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government how many people his Department employs to maintain its social media and networking sites; and at what cost in the last 12 months. (325593)

The Department’s social media channels are maintained as part of the routine business of its web team. This has eight full-time, and one part-time, member of staff. The cost in salary terms for maintaining these social media channels has not been disaggregated but only forms a small proportion of the team’s work load.
