The States of Jersey have gazetted the "Public Holidays and Bank Holidays(Amendment No. 2) (Jersey) Law 2003" which amends the "Public Holidays and Bank Holidays (Jersey) Law 1951".

Amusingly enough, one of the principal changes in the new legislation, focused on closing hours on Sundays and public holidays, and tabled last summer (2002-01-23), is the enforcement of bank closings on bank holidays (Subject to the provisions of any Order made under Article 4, a bank shall not open on a bank holiday).
