Recess questions

Mr Straw said he also announced today new arrangements for tabling of questions during the summer recess. This was in response to requests from all sides of the House. There would be a two-week period for tabling and answering of written questions in early September. The request had been made when September sittings of the House had been suspended. MPs individually could ask up to five written questions on three specific dates. There would also be written Ministerial statements as required. The Vote Office would publish the questions in printed form and he had also asked for them to make the information available on the Parliament website.
