Rozzer should have called the Rozzers

Minding my own business and watching Premier League Darts on Sky last night and spied this beauty.

Rozzer, why are you starting questions to Ruth Kelly with "To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department"? How much does each written question cost? You'd have thought patriotic Andrew would care more about the British tax-payers money.

Unless of course, Ruth Kelly is the next Home Secretary and Rozzer has somehow heard of this reshuffle. Egad! That'd be bad.

The question was submitted to the Table Office addressed to Charles Clarke (whose dept runs the register) who passed it on to Kelly (whose dept runs schools and has been dealing with this story).

Hence Kelly opening the answer with 'I have been asked to reply'.

A minister passing a question on to other ministers to reply is not uncommon.
