HC Deb 10 May 1978 vol 949 c502W
Mr. Wigley

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what representations he has received concerning the need to fix the Easter holiday at a date around the middle of April; and if he will make a statement.

Dr. Summerskill

My right hon. Friend has received, either direct or through hon. Members, seven letters from the public regretting the earliness of Easter this year. As to the implementation of the Easter Act 1928, which would fix Easter Sunday within the period April 9th to 15th, I refer the hon. Member to the answer I gave on 4th May to a Question by the hon. Member for Uxbridge (Mr. Shersby).—[Vol. 949, c. 429.]
