HL Deb 24 January 2002 vol 630 c220WA
Lord Lucas

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Which government departments are now prepared to send to Peers who so request it copies of Answers to Written Questions by e-mail. [HL2312]

Lord Williams of Mostyn

In principle there is no reason why a Peer who has requested it could not be sent a copy of a Written Answer on request. In practice, no formal arrangements have been put in place by the House to enable Peers to make such requests but this should not prevent departments sending a copy of an Answer by e-mail if the Peer lets them know he would like it. If the House would like to formalise this, the Cabinet Office would be happy to liaise on behalf of departments on how this should be done.
