Parliamentary questions are questions addressed by Members of the European Parliament to other European Union Institutions and bodies. They are a direct form of parliamentary scrutiny of other EU institutions and bodies.
There are three categories of parliamentary questions:
Questions for oral answer dealt with during plenary sittings, and included in the day's debates. They may be followed by a resolution (Rule 128)
Questions for Question Time asked during the period set aside for questions during plenary sittings (Rule 129)
Written questions with a request for a written answer (Rule 130)
A written declaration is a text of a maximum of 200 words relating exclusively on a matter falling within the competence of the European Union. They do not, however, bind Parliament, that is, they cannot be considered as an act of the Parliament representing its position, but only those of its authors and signatories.
