HC Deb 06 November 1978 vol 957 cc90-1W
61. Mr. Silvester

asked the Lord President of the Council whether, for the current Session, he will adopt the recommendations of the Procedure Committee and announce now the dates of the recesses during the Session.

Mr. Foot

The Government have not yet completed their consideration of the detailed recommendations made in the Procedure Committee's report. But I have some doubt whether it is practicable to announce dates for recesses much further in advance than at present—particularly when the possibility of unforeseen business is taken into account.
