§ Mr. George Howarth
To ask the Solicitor-General how many times she has refused to meet hon. Members on constituency matters since taking office; and if she will make a statement about the criteria she uses in arriving at such decisions. 
§ The Solicitor-General
Since my appointment I have not turned down any requests for meetings with hon. Members on constituency matters.
I assess requests for meetings with hon. Members on a case by case basis, but generally I would agree to them unless there is a strong reason not to.
