HC Deb 03 March 1980 vol 980 c16W
Mr. Michael Hamiltion

asked the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster what saving to public funds might be achieved if a limit of two questions for written answers for each Member on any one day was imposed by the House.

Mr. St. John-Stevas

It seems likely that any savings would be small. Only six hon. Members asked on average more than two written questions a day during the parliamentary Session 1978–79.
