How long is a piece of string?

Great non-answers of our time
Mr. Hoban: To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer when the results of this year’s HM Treasury staff survey will be published; and if he will place a copy of the report in the Library.

Angela Eagle: We can confirm that the results from the 2007-08 HM Treasury’s staff survey will be published on its website in due course.

It's such an utterly banal question you'd think they wouldn't have a problem answering it, so one must presume that the results show working in the Treasury was Hell, and still is Hell.

Publishing on government websites has included putting the material on the server with no links to it, so it is only 'published' if you know the full URL.
Also, published on intranet.

Same length as your dick.

Depends on the perpective of the person measuring it.
