Questions for Written Answer: Summer Recess

Volume 712: debated on Wednesday 1 July 2009


In 2007, following an experiment in 2006, the House agreed to permanent arrangements for tabling Questions for Written Answer (QWAs) and making Written Ministerial Statements during the Summer Recess. Under these arrangements there are two opportunities during the Recess, on dates to be announced by the Leader of the House, for the tabling of QWAs. Answers are made available online once a week and an edition of Hansard is published on the day after the second tabling day, in which Answers received by that time are published, together with Written Ministerial Statements.

It has been agreed through the usual channels that the dates for tabling QWAs during the Summer Recess 2009 will be Monday 7 September and Monday 5 October.
