Parliament holiday on 1 January

New Delhi: Parliament will have a long weekend this year-end and resume work on 2 January, as both the Houses today decided to have a holiday on the first day of 2018.

In the Lok Sabha, Speaker announced in the afternoon that there would be no sitting of the House on January one as decided by the Business Advisory Committee.

Making the announcement in the Rajya Sabha, Minister of State for Parliamentary Affairs Goel said political parties and several members, especially those from remote parts like the Northeast, had urged that 1 January be declared a holiday.

Accordingly, the House would not sit on 1 January and the loss of business would be compensated by putting in extra hours on the remaining days of the ongoing winter session, he said as the Question Hour came to a close.

Saturdays and Sundays are holidays for Parliament. The Winter Session ends on 5 January.
