§ 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.
