Legislators Vote Themselves a Holiday
More than one Legislative Deputy has their bags packed and ready for a vacation, as the Legislative Assembly goes for recess from July 10 to July 14, resuming functions on Monday July 17.
The vacation period was approved by 46 legislators with three giving the thumbs down.
The vacation coincides with the mid-year school break as more than 1 million students have been off school this week and are set to return on the 17th. The mid-year break is a traditional holiday for students and their families to hit the beaches and mountain resorts.
