Departments: Correspondence

Volume 464: debated on Tuesday 16 October 2007

To ask the hon. Member for Middlesbrough, representing the Church Commissioners what guidance the Commissioners follow on the maximum time taken to respond to hon. Members’ correspondence; and what performance against that target was in the most recent period for which figures are available. (158600)

The Commissioners do not have a formal target for responding to such correspondence but they do aim to respond in the shortest time reasonably possible. I believe that hon. Members receive from the Commissioners sufficiently swift responses or holding replies where the matter requires more detailed research.
