HC Deb 26 April 2004 vol 420 c825W
Mr. Gregory Campbell

To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland whether he plans to abolish the public holidays on(a) 17 March and (b) 12 July in any part of the public service in Northern Ireland. [166131]

Mr. Pearson

I have no plans to change the observance of the bank holiday on 17 March and the bank and public holiday on 12 July by civil servants in the 11 Departments of the Northern Ireland Administration and the Northern Ireland Office who are located in Northern Ireland. Holidays for other public service workers are a matter for the relevant employer.
