Parliament’s February break has been cancelled to give MPs more time to prepare for 29 March Brexit withdrawal.
Andrea Leadsom, leader of the Commons said, “The House will know that recess dates are always announced subject to the process of business.
“In this unique session of Parliament and in light of the significant decisions taken by the House this week, it is only right that I give the House notice that there are currently no plans to bring forward a motion to agree dates for the February recess, and the House may therefore need to continue to sit to make progress on the key business before the House.
“I realise that this is short notice for colleagues and House staff, but I do think our constituents would expect that the House is able to continue to make progress at this important time.”
