Each House of Parliament has the power to adjourn its sittings for any period of time to be determined by an order of the House. Power is given by standing orders of the two Houses to the Lord Speaker (after consultation with Her Majesty's government) and the Speaker respectively at the request of the government, if they are satisfied that the public interest requires it, to summon the Houses to meet on an earlier date than that to which they have been adjourned1.
