§ 78. Mr. MURCHISON
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will reconsider the decision refusing to allow the banks to be closed to the public on 1st January and 1st July?
My right hon. Friend has given a very careful reconsideration to the proposal to make 1st July a Bank Holiday, and has come to the conclusion that in the interests of the business community it would be imprudent to do so.
