Written questions, answers and statements

Written questions allow MPs and Members of the House of Lords to ask government ministers for information on the work, policy and activities of government departments. Government Ministers may make oral or written statements to Parliament. Written statements are normally used to put the day-to-day business of government on the official record and in the public domain.

All oral statements and any written content from before 2014 can be found in Hansard.
