§ Mr. E. GRENFELL
asked the Prime Minister if, prior to the fixing of 3rd June for the celebration of the King's Birthday, he received any representations to fix the day in any week other than one in which there would be a bank holiday; and what are the reasons for departing from the practice, which obtained in Queen Victoria's reign, of celebrating the King's Birthday on a Saturday?
§ The PRIME MINISTER
The answer to the first part of the question is in the 2249W negative. With regard to the remainder, I would refer my hon. Friend to the reply which I gave on the 26th March to a question on this subject by my hon. Friend the Member for Stroud (Sir F. Nelson).
