HC Deb 17 March 1887 vol 312 c528
COLONEL ANSTRUTHER (Suffolk, Woodbridge)

asked the First Lord of the Treasury, Whether, considering that Tuesday, the 21st of June, is to be observed as a public holiday, he can see his way to recommend that the Monday previous should, by Royal Proclamation or otherwise, be kept as a special Bank Holiday, so as to grant to Her Majesty's subjects three consecutive days in which to celebrate Her Jubilee?

THE FIRST LORD (Mr. W. H. SMITH) (Strand, Westminster)

I am sorry to say that I cannot hold out any prospect to my hon. and gallant Friend that Monday, the 20th of June, will be proclaimed as a national holiday, in addition to Tuesday, the 21st.
