§ SIR SEYMOUR KING
To ask the First Lord of the Treasury whether it is proposed to declare 9th August a Bank Holiday.
§ MR. CHARLES ALLEN (Gloucestershire, Stroud)
To ask the First Lord of the Treasury whether he can say if Saturday, 9th August, will be declared a Bank Holiday.
(Answered by Mr. A. J. Balfour.) The result of such inquiries as the Government have been able to make into this matter tends to show that the balance of public opinion is in the direction of turning the customary half-holiday of Saturday into a Bank Holiday on the occasion of the Coronation.
