Lord Adonis questioned by the Lords

15 January 2010

In a new initiative on 14 January, Secretary of State for Transport, Lord Adonis, was asked three additional questions by Members of the House of Lords on transport issues.

The initiative continues to see Members of the House of Lords scrutinise the activities of the Government by ensuring the two Secretaries of State sitting in the Lords (Lord Mandelson and Lord Adonis) are directly responsible for answering the additional questions.

Baroness Hanham, Baroness Wilcox and Lord Bradshaw asked questions on the national bus concession in England, climate change and aviation and passenger satisfaction on railways.

Members of the Lords with wide-ranging expertise in the topics covered also contributed to the discussion on the answers given by Lord Adonis.

Next question session with Lord Mandelson

Lord Mandelson, the Secretary of State for Business, Innovation and Skills, will be asked three additional questions on 21 January. The questions will be announced on 18 January.
