Written Answers

Date Title Questioner
14 Jan 2021 Westminster Hall: Debates Rachael Maskell (Labour (Co-op) - York Central)

Question to the Leader of the House:

To ask the Leader of the House, what discussions he has had with the House authorities on enabling full virtual participation in Westminster Hall debates.

Answered by Jacob Rees-Mogg - Lord President of the Council and Leader of the House of Commons

On 13 January, the House agreed a motion to suspend sittings in Westminster Hall. I refer the Hon. lady to my words during the debate on the question of virtual participation in Westminster Hall.

2 Feb 2021 Opposition Days: Government Responses Patrick Grady (Scottish National Party - Glasgow North)

Question to the Leader of the House:

To ask the Leader of the House, with reference to the Written Statement of 26 October 2017, HCWS199 on Opposition Day Debates and the Answer of 1 November 2017 to Question 110093, whether the Government remains committed to that convention to respond to the resolution of the House by making a statement no more than 12 weeks after the debate.

Answered by Jacob Rees-Mogg - Lord President of the Council and Leader of the House of Commons

I refer the hon. gentleman to my response during business questions on 28 January (Official Report, col. 570). It is vital that the Government sets out its position on motions tabled by the opposition. In my view that is best done during the debate, in particular in the Minister’s closing remarks that respond to the points that have been raised. The Government will always listen carefully to the views of the House and will continue to make regular oral or written statements to announce policy developments, provide updates and respond to events.

3 Feb 2021 Virtual Proceedings Mark Hendrick (Labour (Co-op) - Preston)

Question to the Leader of the House:

To ask the Leader of the House, whether he plans to (a) make an assessment of the effect on the climate of and (b) estimate the savings accruing to the public purse from virtual participation in proceedings by Members of Parliament.

Answered by Jacob Rees-Mogg - Lord President of the Council and Leader of the House of Commons

No. The Government firmly believes that our constituents are best served when Parliament meets physically to the fullest extent possible. The cost associated with virtual participation is not a matter for the Government but one for the House.

@CladTidings @anna_yve No, it’s the Government’s speech really. She just has to read it out. Jacob Rees-Mogg, as Leader of the House, is in charge of scheduling parliamentary business, so he’s probably the best person to ask. Along with Jenrick. - Tweet Link

Today I asked Govt to engage in a serious debate of how the UK plans to reach net-zero. In response, the Leader of the House presented me with Govt propaganda. The Tories have no plan to reach net-zero. It an outrage that Parliament is being left out of this disscussion. https://t.co/hXlI3Ad5zs - Tweet Link
