Hi there!

Please what does that mean?
context:a form to fill in e-mailed by an English employer.

Thank you all! :)

    They want to know as soon as possible about any time that you will definitely need off work for holidays.
    So they are asking you to tell them about any holidays that you have already booked and committed to. Something like a family wedding would also be considered a commitment.

    If somebody asked you if you had any holiday commitments, they are asking if you are engaged, busy, or unavailable during the holidays.:D

    During what holidays, Maisy?
    In England, the employer is asking what holidays the new employee has already committed to - perhaps if I expanded to say - what vacations the new employee has already booked...?
