HC Deb 12 March 1968 vol 760 c268W
Q2. Sir J. Langford-Holt

asked the Prime Minister whether, in view of Her Majesty's policy of supporting the "Back Britain" campaign, he will instruct all Departments that at Christmas and Easter they should not remain closed on extra days beyond Bank Holidays.

The Prime Minister

No. Each of my right hon. Friends in charge of a Department is responsible for the manning arrangements made in his Department at holiday times. Circumstances differ widely and any blanket instruction from me would be inappropriate and uneconomic.
