To ask the Leader of the House, if he will make an assessment of the potential merits of announcing all Parliamentary recesses 12 months in advance subject to the progress of House of Commons business.

I announced recess dates, up to the conference recess, on 9 January 2020 (Official report, col. 616). As ever, recess is subject to the progress of business and the agreement of the House. Further provisional recess dates for 2020 will be announced to the House in due course. I will look to provide as much forward notice on recess dates as is possible.
