star this property answer text <p>On 13 May the House agreed a new set of rules to govern the content of written answers, in response to the introduction of a new electronic system for submitting them. While the digital copy of answers will be the definitive record copy, all written answers will continue to be published, and a signed copy will continue to be sent to the Peer asking the question.</p><p>These rules make clear that all answers should be complete and comprehensible, and not rely on references to external documents or webpages. They also make clear that supporting documents should be included as attachments, not hyperlinks, and referred to in the answer itself. Any attachments that are included will be available in the Library to be printed out on demand.</p><p>All of these rules will help to accommodate those without internet access. I will remind all Lords Ministers to adhere to them.</p><p> </p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Both the UK Government and Scottish Government have said that there can be no ‘pre-negotiations’ on independence in advance of the referendum. The question of how the transfer of prisoners to and from <em>the Scottish prison estate and other parts of the United Kingdom</em> would be affected by Scottish independence cannot be answered now because it would depend on multiple negotiations that could only take place if people in Scotland vote to leave the UK in September’s referendum.</p> more like this
