To ask the Secretary of State for Transport for which Government websites his Department is responsible; how many visitors each received in the last period for which figures are available; and what the cost of maintaining each site was in that period.

The Department for Transport maintains 66 public-facing websites, including those run by the Executive agencies.

Tables have been placed in the Libraries of the House showing unique visitor numbers and maintenance costs for the Department for Transport websites.

Unique visitor data are not provided for all sites as the statistical software used on those sites do not produce this level of detail, only providing page requests rather than unique visitor data.

Where annual maintenance costs are not available this is due to a number of reasons; either the site has only recently been available and maintenance costs are only applicable for the current financial year; the costs are part of a much larger contract and cannot be itemised; or the costs cannot be calculated without incurring disproportionate costs. Costs provided do not include staff costs.
