Parliament does not sit all year round. During periods called recesses, Members can carry out their other duties.
Recess dates are announced in the House of Commons by the Leader of the House of Commons. The exact pattern of recesses can change and is normally slightly different for the two Houses.
The Leader of the House of Commons has only announced recess dates up to January 2014. This page will be updated within one working day when further announcements have been made. This page was last updated on 30 April 2013.
