Oral Questions Rota

Synopsis Questions for oral answer are taken in the Assembly Chamber between 2.00pm and 3.30pm on those Mondays and Tuesdays on which the Assembly is sitting. Oral questions to the Assembly Commission are taken every twelve weeks from 3.00pm on a Tuesday. You can view the rota for questions to Ministers and the Commission in this section.

A rota (below) is arranged for questions to allow Members to scrutinise the work of each Department.

Questions selected for Oral answer will be published on the website each Friday morning. Answers to oral questions are contained in the Official Report for each sitting as appropriate. You can view the questions on our oral questions page.

From Monday 09 September 2013 Question Time will now include 15 minutes of topical questions as well as the usual oral questions. You can find out which Members will be posing topical questions here.
