Member of Parliament for Hohoe, Dr. Bernice Adiku Heloo is advocating for a system in Parliament where MPs would be able to trace and truck the various questions they ask Ministers.

According to the Hohoe legislator with current technological advancement MPs should be able to trace and truck, questions they had pose that needs answers from Ministers.

She further noted that very often MPs complain and get worried over questions they had pose but takes too much time to be answered; on other occasions their questions get missing.

“We want to have a system where, when a questions are sent and the date it was received and when an action was taken documented”, she lamented.

Majority leader who presented the Business Statement when the issue was raised  referred the MP to order 66(2) “when a question is admitted by Mr. Speaker the Clerk shall at once communicate the text to the Minister or Member to who the question is addressed”.

He further advised that MPs should avail themselves to the standing orders when it comes to the issue of questions they have filled and have not had answers.
