All 59 Deputies of the Balearic Parliament are on holiday from Monday, August 3 until September.

Parliament already took a break in March, during the State of Emergency, when sessions were suspended and work was stalled for weeks.

They started back with a small group of people and gradually expanded, although there was resistance from some political groups, who said it was not appropriate when they could continue to work from home.

Parliament is closed for the entire month of August, despite the complicated economic and social situation in the Balearics Islands and the fact that they haven’t passed anything except the Urgent Measures Law to combat the consequences of Covid-19.


The Urgent Measures Law was approved by the Governing Council on May 15 and came into force immediately, but MPs have decided to leave everything else until September.

Balearic govt Stan. But the same principle applies. They’ve done next to nothing, are a total waste of space and are now going on their holidays. We won’t notice any difference to be honest.

They are paid £100,000 per year that includes most of their expenses. The Euro MP s receive much more. They are all on so many tricks and ways to be paid for no work. Do Britain need over 600 M Ps.? I do not think they warrant their salary. But ALL the Bars in the House will suffer Bankruptcy , should a large majority of the MPs be removed.
