HC Deb 08 July 1966 vol 731 cc117-8W
Sir W. Bromley-Davenport

asked the President of the Board of Trade what dates in 1969 will be allocated for Bank Holidays, in view of the necessity for those who have to make long-term arrangements to have this information.

Mr. Darling

Before deciding on changed dates for Bank Holidays in 1969 I shall wish to study not only our experience with the move of this year's August Bank Holiday to the end of the month, but also any effects on next year's summer holiday pattern caused by the examinations for the General Certificate of Education being again advanced from July to June.
