Question

Point of Order, Chairman. Sorry to interrupt the Mayor. Can I just ask about the procedure, because the Mayor has already issued this answer as a press release at 10.02am, saying he had already answered at MQT. I mean what is the point? I don't want to interrupt procedure. I just want to know, do we set protocols about these questions or what? Because if the Mayor's office is issuing these as press releases before we actually hear them ourselves at the meeting, then something is not quite right and it needs to be looked at.

Could I say, I've got a copy of the Assembly press release about what you are asking me as well. So let's not get too pompous about this.

The Chair: The Assembly press release merely lists the questions and was, I think, released last week. It is a very fair point and not one I think that can be dealt with at this moment and I think that Mike is entitled to an answer to the questions that he wants to ask. If he wants to go straight to his supplementary that is up to him.
