Comments on: Is 82 days a fair holiday for MPs? http://blogs.reuters.com/uknews/2009/07/23/is-82-days-a-fair-holiday-for-mps/ Insights from the UK and beyond Tue, 15 Nov 2016 20:30:03 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: Tanya Jones http://blogs.reuters.com/uknews/2009/07/23/is-82-days-a-fair-holiday-for-mps/comment-page-1/#comment-10054 Tue, 28 Jul 2009 13:30:27 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/uknews/?p=3501#comment-10054 The term ‘holiday’ is probably a bit misleading. From what I’ve heard, MP’s often use the break from the Commons to pursue constituency activities, so the question itself is a bit meaningless without more context.
