HC Deb 24 February 1977 vol 926 c691W
49. Mr. Andrew F. Bennett

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will make a statement about the dates for Bank holidays for the next five years.

Mr. Denzil Davies

It would not be appropriate to do so. Decisions concerning the dates of Bank holidays have sometimes to be taken in the circumstances of the time and in consultation with the interests concerned. To publish proposals for five years ahead would prejudice such consultations and commit future Governments.
