Questions for Written Answer: Unanswered Question

Volume 702: debated on Thursday 26 June 2008

asked the Leader of the House:

Further to her reply on 10 June (Official Report, House of Lords, col. 480) about Mr Liam Byrne MP being responsible for not answering Baroness Valentine's Question for Written Answer tabled on 24 January, whether she has drawn this matter to the attention of the Prime Minister; and what recommendations she made for the management of Mr Byrne's responsibilities. [HL4155]

An Answer was given to Baroness Valentine on 16 June 2008 (Official Report, col. WA 122). The Government take accountability to Parliament through Questions for Written Answer very seriously and I am working with ministerial colleagues to ensure that Answers are accurate and timely.
