To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department when she will answer question 183418, tabled by the right hon. Member for Haltemprice and Howden on 28 January 2008, on Project Contest; and what the reasons are for the time taken to reply.
I replied to the right hon. Gentleman on 22 April 2008, Hansard, column 1949W. My Department makes every effort to answer all parliamentary questions within the timescales set by the House however this is not always possible.
