House of Commons summer recess

Source: HM Government | | 30/06/2019

The House of Commons summer recess has been confirmed after parliament voted 223 to 25 in favour of the move. This means that the House will rise on Thursday 25 July and return on Tuesday 3 September.

The timing of this five-week break whilst the Brexit issue continues to dominate the headlines has been criticised by many on different sides of the political divide. The next leader of the Conservative Party and new Prime Minister is to officially take over from the outgoing Prime Minister, Theresa May, on Wednesday 24 July. There are now just two remaining candidates for the position, Boris Johnson and Jeremy Hunt.

The agreed six-month extension to Brexit of 31 October 2019 is also fast approaching.
