HL Deb 11 February 2004 vol 656 cc154-5WA
Lord Jopling

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Further to the Written Answer by Baroness Symons of Vernham Dean on 15 January (WA 101), whether the same administrative error has led to the failure to answer Lord Judd's Questions of 4 December and 8 December which have awaited reply for six weeks, when the target time for answering Written Questions is two weeks. [HL906]

Baroness Amos

The Questions to which the noble Lord refers were originally allocated to the Foreign and Commonwealth Office. However, answers were in fact required from the Department for International Development and the Ministry of Defence.

I am pleased to say that the Questions have now been answered.
