HC Deb 25 March 2003 vol 402 cc165-6W
Mr. Bercow

To ask the Parliamentary Secretary, Lord Chancellor's Department what the total cost of the Department's website was in the last 12 months; and how many hits it received in the same period. [104192]

Yvette Cooper

Website related work is not differentiated from other work in the production and publication of departmental material. The total annual cost of my Department's website could therefore not be obtained without incurring disproportionate costs.

For the financial year 2001–02, my Department's website, (www.lcd.gov.uk), attracted 469,683 unique visitors (a more reliable indicator of individuals accessing web pages than hits).
