Will write letters

A will write letter is a letter sent by a government minister to another member of parliament if they have promised to write to them with additional information during a debate or when answering a question.

Copies of these letters are placed in the Commons or Lords Library and added to the Deposited Papers database. Letters that have been sent in response to a question raised during a debate on a current Bill are added to the list of the relevant Bill's documents on our website.
