Petition Let the Speaker make Ministers answer questions that they have not answered.
Give the Speaker of the House of Commons the powers to decide whether or not an answer given by a Minister in Parliament is acceptable and relevant, and to require them to provide a further response, if needed.
This petition is intended to improve the accountability of the Government of the day by ensuring that Ministers answer the questions put to them by MPs in the course of Parliamentary business and do not change the subject.
