§ 24. Mr. SUMMERSBY
asked the Home Secretary whether, in view of the great advantage which would accrue to all classes of people, he will take immediate steps to secure the adoption of a fixed date for the Easter holiday?
§ Sir J. GILMOUR
His Majesty's Government is waiting the result of the communication by the League of Nations to the various religious authorities on the subject, but I understand that these replies are not yet complete.
Will the Government remember that the Latin countries have quite a different view about Easter from the Northern countries; and will he take the side of the Northern countries and not of the Latin countries upon this question?
