The senior MP who chairs a Commons spending watchdog says the Government should consider making parliamentary calendar longer, because MPs risk looking "lazy". In response, a spokesperson for the Prime Minister has said in recent years the House has, in fact, been sitting for longer:
Ultimately, the shape of the parliamentary calendar is a matter for the House as a whole.
My understanding is that, for the 2013 calendar year, the House will be sitting for longer than in any of the previous four years and possibly longer than that.
Under this Government, there have been September sittings as well.
