Cancel MPs' Christmas recess until a course of action over Brexit is agreed
background
Leader of the House of Commons Andrea Leadsom has confirmed that Parliament will rise on 20 December for the Christmas recess, returning on 7 January as originally scheduled. This is despite MPs' individual and collective actions in failing to reach agreement on a course of action over Brexit.
additional details
This leaves UK citizens, however they voted in the referendum, in a state of acute uncertainty and UK businesses in limbo at a time when they need to plan for the future. While Parliament remaining in session over Christmas has unwelcome ramifications for support staff, MPs must recognise that it is unacceptable to take holiday leave at such a time. In the manner of a Papal Conclave, it is their duty to commit to reaching a consensus, whatever that looks like, before the current sitting period can end.
