HC Deb 02 April 1917 vol 92 cc907-8
74. Mr. CROOKS

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether it is proposed to close the banks on Easter Saturday; and whether, if no representations to this effect have been made to him by the banks on behalf of their staffs, he will approach the banks himself in the interests of those employed in banks, who have been hard worked for a long time and have been deprived of several of their statutory holidays?


As I have already stated, Saturday, 7th April, will be a Bank Holiday, though not a general holiday.
