HL Deb 10 June 2002 vol 636 c8WA
Lord Morris of Manchester

asked Her Majesty's Government:

What has been the longest time taken to reply to a Question for Written Answer in the House of Lords about an issue within the responsibilities of the Department of Trade and Industry in the current parliamentary session. [HL4482]

Lord Sainsbury of Turville

Unfortunately during this session the longest time was 67 calendar days. This was due to the fact that it was originally accepted by another government department.
