HC Deb 28 March 1887 vol 312 cc1621-2
MR. HANBURY (Preston)

asked the First Lord of the Treasury, Whether, as only one public holiday is to be observed in celebration of the 50th anniversary of Her Majesty's accession, the Government have finally decided to fix such holiday for Tuesday, 21st June; and, whether Monday, 20th June, which is actually the date of such anniversary, would not be a more convenient day for the public generally?

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

the question raised by my hon. Friend has engaged the serious consideration of Her Majesty's Government; but they find it necessary to adhere to the arrangement they have already made, that Tuesday, the 21st of June, shall be observed in celebration of Her Majesty's Jubilee.
