Michael Dugher MP, Labour’s Shadow Cabinet Office Minister, commenting on recess dates published today, said:

"After taking a battering from Ed Miliband over police cuts and Andrew Mitchell and then shambolically announcing the wrong energy policy all in the space of five minutes yesterday, it's no surprise that David Cameron wants to dodge Prime Minister's Questions. But timetabling the House of Commons to miss so many Wednesdays next year looks cynical and totally weak. If he's not prepared to defend his own policies, no wonder people think he's out of touch."
