New! Ministerial Statements now included
Nope, most of us had never heard of them either, but apparently:
Written Ministerial Statements were introducted in late 2002 to stop the practice of having "planted" or "inspired" questions designed to elicit Government statements.
They are just that - statements on a particular topic by a Government Minister.
Well, there you go. You live and learn.
Next up: Select Committees, which promise to be an order of magnitude more challenging. We'll keep you posted.
PS We're always on the lookout for new volunteers - contact us if you are keen to help in almost any capacity.
