HC Deb 30 April 1991 vol 190 c140W
Mr. Vaz

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what is the volume of correspondence (i) coming in and (ii) being sent out by the Members of Parliament's correspondence unit of the Foreign Office for each month in 1990.

Mr. Garel-Jones

It is not possible to put a figure to the volume of all correspondence addressed to the Secretary of State and Ministers of State at the Foreign and Commonwealth Office. However, 14,275 letters were received from Members of Parliament in 1990. It is our policy to reply to all such letters.
