HC Deb 02 August 1951 vol 491 c237W
77. Lieut.-Colonel Lipton

asked the Minister of Labour whether, in order to ensure the more efficient staggering of holidays, he will introduce legislation to alter the dates of the Whitsun and August bank holiday to the last Monday in June and August, respectively.

Mr. Robens

No. There is no general demand for such a change, and it is extremely doubtful whether it would in fact result in a greater staggering of annual holidays.
