Parliamentary business relating to Northern Ireland from 1 February to 10 February.
Written questions can be used by MPs or Lords to hold the Government to account, requesting information such as policy detail or statistics.
Oral questions provide an opportunity for MPs and Lords to ask Government ministers questions on the floor of each House. These questions are asked at the start of the day's business in both chambers.
Ministerial statements can take the form of either oral or written statements. Oral statements often address major incidents, policies and actions. Written statements are often used to put the day-to-day business of government on the official record.
Report stage in the House of Lords gives all Members further opportunity to consider all amendments (proposals for change) to a Bill.
