HC Deb 27 June 1972 vol 839 c307W
57. Sir C. Taylor

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he will now reconsider the question of a fixed Easter on a date between 5th April and 9th April.

Mr. Lane

No. The Easter Act, 1928, provides for Easter Day to be the first Sunday after the second Saturday in April, but the question whether that Act should be brought into force continues to depend upon agreement being reached between the major Christian Churches.
