My Lords, it may be for the convenience of the House if I make a short Statement about dates for the Summer Recess. As usual, as is our practice, a note of all the dates that I am about to announce will be available in the Printed Paper Office by the time that I have sat down. All of these dates have the usual and very necessary caveat that they are subject to the progress of business. We will rise for the Summer Recess at the end of business on Thursday, 20 July. We will return for a September sitting on Tuesday, 5 September. Further dates will be announced in due course, but I hope that, for now, having details for the long adjournment over the summer is helpful to the House.
