The new Anguillan cabinet of Chief Minister Hubert Hughes has announced in Parliament that Tuesday, March 2, 2010, will be a public holiday to honor the father of the nation, James Ronald Webster.

The March 2nd birthday of James Ronald Webster was set to become a new public holiday, beginning in 2008, but a last-minute motion in the legislature downgraded it to a school holiday only (2007-05-25).

But after his election, last month, Anguilla's recently elected Chief Minister, Hubert Hughes, had announced that the birthday of James Ronald Webster would henceforth be a full-fledged public holiday in Anguilla (2010-02-17).
