§ Simon Hughes
To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what the(a) set-up and (b) running costs are of his Department's anti-terrorism website. 
§ Mr. Blunkett
The anti-terrorism site (www.homeoffice.gov.uk/terrorism) is a part of the core Home Office website and the running costs are met from the existing budget for running the main website. Costs directly associated with setting up these pages are:
The site had 275,000 page impressions during March and April. A service guaranteeing resilience of the servers in the event of increased traffic or security breaches was also procured at a cost of £30,000 per annum. Although this has been put in place to protect the site as a whole in accordance with security requirements, its implementation was timed to tie in with the launch of the anti-terrorism site in order to ensure that the site would cope with the large volume of traffic.
