Written Questions

Volume 448: debated on Tuesday 11 July 2006

To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Skills what proportion of written questions from hon. Members to his Department in the last 12 months were answered within (a) one week, (b) two weeks and (c) one month of tabling. (84395)

The Department’s parliamentary question tracking system is unable to break the data down as requested. The answer could be supplied only at a disproportionate cost.

Departments aim to ensure that Members receive a substantive response to their named day question on the named day, and endeavour to answer ordinary written questions within a working week of being tabled.
