Postponed Questions

If a reply to a question is not ready, an application for extension of time is made by the Minister concerned to the Speaker, who may extend the time for answering the question and no discussion is permitted in the House about the reasons for postponement. All Starred Questions which are postponed during the course of a week, are reprinted in a list of Postponed Questions and are taken up on the following Tuesday and if such list is exhausted before the end of the Question Hour, the normal list for the Tuesday is taken up.

Where the Speaker is of the opinion that a question has not been adequately answered, he may postpone it to a later day.
