I am really surprised at how few questions are avoided by Parliament

Only 46% of written questions were satisfactorily answered since January 2004.
The most evasive departments in Whitehall are the Department for Work and Pensions, which the public thought fully answered only 39% of questions, and the Treasury, on just 37%.
Until I read that I thought the proportion was well under a quarter - I must be far too cynical
