One of the ways the House of Lords scrutinises and challenges the work of the government is through written questions.
Every week during the summer recess, Lords Hansard publishes written answers online to questions submitted by members of the Lords.
Some of the subjects for written statements and answers on Monday 6 August included:
- Digital switchover
- Health and Social Care Act 2012
- Legal aid
- Social media
The Government Whips Office publishes the dates for members to table questions for written answers.
