Chapter 19 - Relations with the executive government

Additional responses to questions without notice

It is established practice for ministers at the end of question time to make additional responses to questions without notice. They then provide orally, or by incorporation in Hansard, information which they were unable to provide at the time the question was asked. Supplementary questions are not permitted in relation to such answers. (See ruling of Deputy President West, 21/10/1999, J.1985.)
