HC Deb 26 April 2002 vol 384 c463W
Dr. Stoate

To ask the Prime Minister if he will make a statement about his accountability to Parliament. [53474]

The Prime Minister

I have approached the Chairman of the Liaison Committee with a view to appearing before Select Committee Chairmen to discuss domestic and international affairs every six months. Further discussions will continue with the Liaison Committee and the House Authorities to work out the precise details. These sessions will be held in public and will give Select Committee Chairmen the opportunity to ask me a range of in-depth questions. I will of course continue to account to Parliament weekly on the issues of the day during Prime Minister's Questions on a Wednesday.
