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.
