Alert me about debates like this

I take the point that the debate could happen straight after the recess—as the Minister said, there is a 28-day clock—but the measure ignores

“periods of dissolution, prorogation or adjournment of either House for more than 4 days”.

It would ignore the recess. The 28-day limit imposed by subsection (9) runs only when the House is sitting, does it not?
