Order Paper Questions may be submitted by Members of Parliament on specific days and are formally presented by an MP. Once submitted, the questions are entered into the parliamentary journals. If the MP designates that a response from the Government is required in writing the Government has 45 days to respond. Failure of the Government to respond within this time frame is automatically referred to a Standing Committee. Further information on Order Paper Questions can be found on the Government of Canada’s web site here.
We eagerly await the Government’s response.
