Besides asking the Government questions during oral question period, private members of the legislature can submit written questions to Ministers asking for detailed information as a means of holding the Government responsible for its decisions and actions. Written questions usually require a more complicated answer than questions asked during oral question period, so they are submitted in writing through the Office of the Clerk to the Minister responsible for the topic.
