Since the introduction of the electronic system for the handling of parliamentary questions for written answer, the Table Office has provided the Procedure Committee with statistics relating to the timeliness of answers which are obtained directly from that system. The Procedure Committee’s most recent report on its monitoring of written parliamentary questions, which provided data for the session 2015–16, was published on 27 July 2016 as HC 191 of Session 2016–17.

On Monday 11 July my right hon. Friend the First Secretary of State and Minister for the Cabinet Office made a written statement, HCWS35, detailing the performance of Departments and Agencies on handling correspondence from Members and Peers during the calendar year 2016.
