If you submitted your question but it hasn't been published, the Table Office may have had a problem that they could not easily resolve.

Questions that are unclear or break the rules for questions are ‘carded’. This means you’ll receive an email asking you to get in touch with the Table Office to discuss your question. You’ll also receive a notification on the online MemberHub.

Such discussions often result in an amended version of the question being tabled. The Table Office can have these discussions with your staff, if staff have your authority to act on your behalf.

If you would like to be certain that a particular question will be tabled on the day you submit it, you or your staff should bring it into the Table Office in person and ask them to check it on the spot.

If you use the MemberHub to submit questions online, you should be aware that the system cuts off at 6.30pm on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays, 5.30pm on Thursdays and 2.30pm on Fridays. After that, questions submitted online are held over until the next day and count towards the next day’s quota of 20 online questions.
