Recess Dates

Assembly business happens throughout the year, with periods of "recess" (breaks). During recess, there are normally no meetings in the Chamber and no committee meetings. MLAs are usually in their constituencies where they continue to work on your behalf. 

The following recess dates were agreed by the Business Committee on 15 March 2022 and will be subject to review by the new Business Committee in the next mandate.:

Summer 2022:

2 July 2022 to 4 September 2022

(Assembly Term - Mon 5 September 2022 – Fri 28 October 2022)

Halloween 2022:

29 October 2022 to 6 November 2022

(Assembly Term - Mon 7 November 2022 – Sat 17 December 2022)

The Business Committee may review, and amend these dates as and when required.
