As an experiment last year, Members were allowed to table six Questions for Written Answer on two days during the Summer Recess. On 5 June this year, the House agreed to a recommendation of the Procedure Committee (Third Report, HL Paper 104) to make permanent limited provision for tabling Questions for Written Answer in the Summer Recess.
This year, Members are reminded that they will be able to table Questions on two dates: Monday 3 September and Monday 1 October. The 14-day deadline will continue to apply and Answers will be published by Hansard online as they come in. A paper Hansard will be published after the second tabling day.
