HC Deb 08 June 1967 vol 747 c250W
46. Sir W. Teeling

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether, in view of the early Easter this year and the resulting waiting of nine weeks for the Spring Bank Holiday which with Selective Employment Tax is more than many hotels can afford for keeping extra staff, he will consider fixing the Spring Bank Holiday six weeks after Easter instead of at the end of May.

Mr. J. P. W. Mallalieu

No. The Government share the view of the previous Administration that a fixed spring bank holiday could make a worthwhile contribution to the extension of the holiday season.
