MPs in Valencia and Andalucía get six weeks' holiday for Christmas
07 January 2013 @ 20:31

REGIONAL government MPs get more holiday time over Christmas than school children in many parts of Spain. In the Comunidad Valenciana, the 99 members of Parliament downed tools for the festive season a few days before the schools broke up – but do not go back to work until February 1. This means they get a whole 42 days, or six weeks off. Some are said to have popped back into their offices at the beginning of January, but this is optional and a personal decision. In Andalucía, the same situation occurred, with MPs finishing for the holidays on Thursday, December 20 and not returning to their offices until February 1.
