Departments: Correspondence

Volume 464: debated on Tuesday 16 October 2007

To ask the hon. Member for North Devon, representing the House of Commons Commission what guidance the Commission follows 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. (158593)

The Commission receives relatively little correspondence from hon. Members but answers some 300 parliamentary questions a year. Parliamentary questions are answered whenever possible within the normal targets and other correspondence is dealt with as expeditiously as possible.
