Urgent Question: use of fake British passports

23 February 2010

Chris Bryant, Foreign Office Minister for Europe, answered an urgent question from Shadow Foreign Secretary, William Hague, on the use of fake British passports by people implicated in the murder of Mahmoud al-Mabhouh in Dubai. The Government also made a written ministerial statement on the subject.

Urgent questions

Urgent questions are asked at the end of Question Time. If something has happened - usually a matter of public importance - which an MP believes requires an immediate answer from a government minister, he may apply to the Speaker to ask an urgent question. If the latter agrees, the question will be asked at the end of regular Question Time.
