You can see the text of the recent debate on Penalty Notices, holidays in term time and the definition of “regular” attendance here;

No key decisions -“The Government will set out our next steps in due course and will make an announcement.” However, it’s not exactly quiet on the political front at the moment so there are some other priorities….(like the new Cabinet)
Lots of reference to the NAHT guidance
“If an event can reasonably be scheduled outside of term time then it would not be normal to authorise absence.”
