§ Mr. Turner
asked the Minister of Education if he will give a general ruling as to whether Good Friday should be counted as an occasional or ordinary closure.
§ Mr. Tomlinson
The fixing of dates for school terms is a matter for the school authorities within the general requirements of my Grant Regulations. Where 323W Good Friday falls during term time, I would regard it, for the purpose of my Regulations, as a day on which schools should not be expected to meet for secular instruction.
