asked Her Majesty's Government:

Whether it is now possible for a Peer who so requests to receive copies of Answers to written Questions by electronic means; if so, which departments now offer this facility; and when the rest will do so too.

Peers who so request may now receive electronic Answers to their written Questions from the Cabinet Office only. Indeed this is the very first Answer from government to be transmitted electronically. I refer the noble Lord to my previous Answer that I gave him on 15 February (Hansard, col. 331) about other departments offering this facility.
