Labour Promises Bank Holidays to Celebrate our National Days


Happy St. George's Day! This morning I've been celebrating by joining the very first St. George's Day parade in Fleetwood. Many thanks to the organisers, the Fleetwood Old Boys Band and many our local military veterans for making the event such a success.

With Labour, St. George's Day will become one of four new Bank Holidays. It's our national day, and it's only right that we can all mark it with our friends, families and communities to celebrate what makes our nation special.

We currently have the fewest public holidays of any G20 or European country. Labour will change this, bringing in UK-wide public holidays for each of our four national days.
