Parliamentary Questions

Volume 454: debated on Monday 11 December 2006

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport whether his Department has a traffic light system in place for processing parliamentary questions, where questions are categorised using a colour code. (103150)

The Department for Transportdoes not use a traffic light system in processing parliamentary questions.

However, my ministerial colleagues and I aim to ensure that hon. 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. It is not always possible but the Department for Transport makes every effort to achieve these timescales.
