Parliamentary Written Question of the Week…

Now that the US President is back home across the pond, it’s probably safe to note the latest candidate in an occasional series.  From the House of Commons written parliamentary questions 20 June.

US White House

Sir Bob Russell: To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport whether the Government plans to commemorate the 200th anniversary of the burning of the White House, Washington DC, US by the British army on 24 August 1814; and if she will make a statement. [160206]

Mr Vaizey: The Government has no plans to commemorate this.

Heh.  [*ahem* – Ed NSA]
