The recent motion in the House of Assembly by opposition member, Edison Baird, calling for a public holiday to be instituted in honour of Revolutionary Leader, James Ronald Webster, was defeated.

Instead, an annual School Holiday has been approved to occur annually on the March 2, birthday of James Ronald Webster. As such, on this date, or the corresponding appointed date, all schools will be closed in Anguilla, beginning in 2008.
