This makes for interesting reading, although the sample is probably a little too small to be statistically significant. Note that IDS answers no correspondence at all (within the 14 day time limit of the survey), and the PM and Charles Kennedy answer only 40% and 39% respectively. Ken Clarke only matches the LibDem leader’s response rate, whereas my MP, Andrew Tyrie, manages to beat the average with a response rate of 67%. All of which is pretty shoddy when local councils and other public bodies are expected to achieve correspondence response rates of at least 90%.
