Questions to Ministers.

Oral Answers to Questions — Education. – in the House of Commons on 23rd March 1922.

Alert me about debates like this

Mr. J. JONES:

On a point of Order, Questions 1 and 2, addressed to the Minister of Pensions, have been called a second time, and have not been answered. Why have we nobody present on behalf of the Department to answer questions?

Should an hon. Member not be in his place to ask questions which he has put down when they are called the first time, there is no obligation on Ministers to be present when the questions are called the second time.

Mr. JONES:

They ought to be. They are getting their money for doing nothing.
