HC Deb 10 February 1922 vol 150 c468

May I ask Mr. Speaker whether there has been any change in the allocation of Question days? On the board in the Lobby, Friday is given as the only day on which Air questions can be raised.


It is not customary for Ministers to attend on Friday to answer oral questions.


Will a written answer be supplied to each question on the Order Paper to-day?

The LEADER of the HOUSE (Mr. Chamberlain)

I am not strictly in order, but may I, for the convenience of the House, say that written answers will be supplied to all these questions? As Mr. Speaker has said, it never has been customary for Ministers to attend to answer questions verbally on Friday. It is not possible when we meet at 11 o'clock to have our answers prepared in time. It would be for the convenience of Members if they would be good enough to put their questions down on other days if they desire an oral answer.
