§ 30. Mr. Silvester
asked the Lord President of the Council if he will propose to the House a resolution to allow Members to ask two Oral Questions per sitting day.
§ Mr. Silvester
Will the Leader of the House accept my apologies in that the Question does not quite say what I intended it to say, which was that two Questions could be asked provided that not more than one was to the same Minister? Will he recognise that the reason for this proposal is that, apparently, the Table Office has to maintain over a fortnight a long and complex administrative arrangement whereas, if it was obliged to check the matter out each day, it would simply need to keep a record for a single day, which would be a useful change?
