Great minds think alike...the resumption of an occasional series...

On Tuesday it's Oral Questions to the Secretary of State for Justice. Here's just a selection from the 25 questions which have made it onto the order paper.

*1 James Duddridge (Rochford & Southend East): If he will make an assessment of the effectiveness of the common law offence of misconduct in a public office.

*3 Mr Andrew Mackay (Bracknell): If he will make an assessment of the effectiveness of the common law offence of misconduct in a public office.

*4 Mr Desmond Swayne (New Forest West): If he will bring forward proposals to place on a statutory basis the common law offence of misconduct in a public office.

*10 Mr Peter Bone (Wellingborough): If he will make an assessment of the effectiveness of the common law offence of misconduct in a public office.

*14 Mr Richard Bacon (South Norfolk): If he will make an assessment of the effectiveness of the common law offence of misconduct in a public office.

*19 Mr David Jones (Clwyd West): If he will make an assessment of the effectiveness of the common law offence of misconduct in a public office.

*21 Mr David Heathcoat-Amory (Wells): If he will bring forward proposals further to define in statute the law relating to parliamentary privilege.

*24 Mr Andrew Robathan (Blaby): If he will make an assessment of the effectiveness of the common law offence of misconduct in a public office.


Oh, and there's also these two:

*22 Sir Nicholas Winterton (Macclesfield): What recent discussions he has had with HM Prison Service on increasing the amout of purposeful activity for prisoners.

*23 Tony Baldry (Banbury): What recent discussions he has had with HM Prison Service on increasing the amount of purposeful activity for prisoners.

OK, I admit - we sometimes do it too. But we usually manage to be a little more subtle about it!
