What is recess?
A recess is a break during the parliamentary session (year) in which neither the House of Commons or the House of Lords meets to conduct business.
During periods called recesses, MPs and Members of the House of Lords can carry out their other duties.
The exact pattern of recesses can change and is usually slightly different for the two Houses of Parliament.
