To ask the Leader of the House what assessment he has made of the arrangements for tabling questions during the summer recess.

My preliminary assessment is that the tabling process went smoothly.

Over 730 questions from over 130 Members were tabled for answer on the three named days. The exercise was successful in offering a further method of holding the Executive to account, despite the House being adjourned.

Following further evaluation, I intend to issue a written ministerial statement to provide information to the whole House, which will include the performance of Government Departments in answering the questions.
