Sir Bob 1st with questions to the Prime Minister

March 13, 2014 2:08 PM

Colchester MP Sir Bob Russell has put more questions to Prime Minister David Cameron than any other MP in Essex.

And more than any Labour MP in the whole of Britain!

Figures published today show that Liberal Democrat Sir Bob - with 15 questions at the weekly Prime Minister's Question Time - has registered the fourth highest in the country since the 2010 General Election.

In addition to his success rate at Prime Minister's Questions, throughout his time as MP Sir Bob has registered the best voting attendance record of all MPs.

Those MPs called to put a question to the Prime Minister can do so by one of two ways. The first is to submit their name for the weekly draw from which 15 MPs get their name on the order paper. The other way, as can be seen when watching television, is when MPs bob up and down during the 30-minute session each Wednesday in the hope that The Speaker will call them.

Sir Bob's 15 questions have been a combination of these two methods. His most recent was two weeks' ago (26 February) when he criticised Mr Cameron for cutting the size of the Army.

    If you are a resident of the Colchester constituency and are writing to discuss any issue that Parliament or government is responsible for, you must provide your home address as MPs are generally only permitted to act on behalf of constituents.

    If you are not a constituent, you do not need to provide your address, but the matters we can deal with are more limited and you may wish to contact your local MP in the first instance.
