HL Deb 13 October 2004 vol 665 c59WA
Lord Jopling

asked the Leader of the House:

Given that on 8 September five Questions for Written Answer tabled in June and 53 Questions tabled in July awaited Answers, what action she intends to take to honour the convention that Answers should be within two weeks. [HL4204]

Baroness Amos

All government departments endeavour to answer Questions for Written Answer within the fourteen-day deadline. I regret, however, that it has taken so long to answer these Questions.

I continue to review the outstanding questions with my ministerial colleagues on a weekly basis and remind them of the importance of prompt and accurate answers.
