After much prevarication, the Premier of Australia's State of New South Wales (NSW), Nathan Rees, has finally announced that the State government will gazette an additional public holiday on Monday, December 28, 2009, to compensate the fact that the Boxing Day public holiday falls on a Saturday in 2009.

When the issue first came to the fore, last month (2009-01-26), Premier Rees has refused to confirm the possibility of a day in lieu for Boxing Day 2009.
