Congress does not plan to sit (other than pro forma sessions by the Senate) until after Election Day on 4th November.
Parliament will be sitting. The Counter Terrorism Bill and the Planning Bill will dominate House of Lords Business - both are very controversial. In the House of Commons, The Banking Bill is due to be considered at 2nd Reading, and Wednesday will be given over to Treasury business and a debate on local government.
Full detail of Parliamentary Business can be found in the Weekly Information Bulletin, which is available as a PDF file. Business in the chamber, as well as the work of committees are detailed there. http://www.publications.parliament.uk/pa/cm200708/cmwib/wb081011/11.10.2008.pdf
