Letter: Where are our MPs?

Dear Editor, After an eight/nine-week break, parliament sits for 1 hour 15 minutes and then adjourns for three months -- pathetic!

So much for the 45 days that parliament said it was going to sit in 2023. I have it at about 18 days all up. 

When MPs come back on December 13, can we please just have them giving their festive greetings after all the hard work they have done in 2023. 

So rest up and roll on 2024.
