13 Weeks Holiday? Oh Puhrleease..

Mr. Dismore (Hendon, Lab): Does my right hon. Friend agree that we really must consider whether it is a good idea for us to sit in September? Here we are—during good weather, when we could be doing work in our constituencies … The work that we will be doing in the next couple of weeks is just a sop to the press and not really part of the parliamentary process. We could be doing far more useful work in our constituencies during this fine September weather … “work in our constituencies” translation: off to Tuscany.
